Discover does not honor repo include/exclude statements


Discover shows that an update is available in a repo that has include/exclude statements which should prevent this package from being shown or selected.

If a package is excluded, it should be ignored by Discover and not shown as being available in that particular repository.

Workaround is unfortunately having to completely unselect the repo search function and use DNF or another package.

As far as I understand, this is an issue in upstream PackageKit, can you please report there?


Thank you!

Thanks for the info, I reported it here:

However, there is also this...

Which begs the question, why is Discover using packagekit when packagekit is basically going away?

1. there's no alternative
2. it's actively maintained by other people besides hughsie.
