Description Nate Graham 2022-10-08 22:03:32 UTC
Everything KDE from git master.

Discover shows me an upgrade from version 1.1.2 to 2.0.1 for the Bibata Modern Ice cursor theme. When I try to upgrade to it, the update process gets stuck at 0% forever. Console log shows the following relevant-looking output:

"The downloaded file is a html file. This indicates a link to a website instead of the actual download. Would you like to open the site with a browser instead?" KNSCore::Question::YesNoQuestion

However this message is not shown in the UI anywhere, and no interactivity is provided to resolve the situation. It looks like there may be an issue with the content of this update, but Discover failing to show the message and offer resolution options is also a bug.

KNSCore::Question: Include the entry in the question

More often than not, a question will be about an entry. This is relevant
information about the question. Include the entry in the question so the
client can relate it to e.g. a transaction, as needed by Discover.

kns: Add support for questions

Splits KNSTransaction into a separate file and attaches a
QuestionListener to each to know if there's a question related to our

The ContinueCancel questions we map them into the proceed/cancel
abstraction that Transaction already has.
The rest, we don't have the UX for at the moment, but at least we cancel
the transaction and we show an error message instead of letting our
users wonder.
