    904 updates the same xulrunner-1.9.1 files everyday

    I did online update from 8:10 to 904 as a wubi In April.. and there were small issues.. but i have since been able to solve Nearly all.. except this recent issue.
    In the past 2 weeks.. i get a Daily required Update manager request. Saying there are updates. Some times they are newer updates which is ok.. be each and every day it includes this two files. EVERY SINGLE day.

    Code:
    xulrunner-1.9.1 and xulrunner-1.9.1-gnome-support
    I am not amazingly technical.. and i have tried to search for this issue.. but found nothing related to MY issue. i can find things about Firefox after this files update NOT working.. or other little bitties like that.. but nothing where it succeeds? or so it seems.. but comes back every single day? nothing on that at all.
    Can Some one please? help me find out what the Heck the system is doing to cause it to See it every day as needing to be updated but yet.. succeed in its "UPDATE" and then Needed it again.. tomorrow?

    Thanks
    FWJ

    It's the Groundhog Day effect.

    Now seriously, I have no idea what's causing this. The xulrunner-1.9.1 package is shipped with Firefox 3.5 (Shiretoko), but I'm running a compiled build, which apparently does not require it.

    I will install Shiretoko and check if I get the same updates.

    Have you included some PPA repositories, like ubuntu-mozilla-daily, ubuntu-mozilla-security? I'm not sure, but maybe they are updating xulrunner-1.9.1 daily

    Re: 904 updates the same xulrunner-1.9.1 files everyday

    well.. a guy was helping me in here to install the 3.5 , was that you? and we found that there were multiple tries on my part to install.. which all failed.. you/he had me uninstall some stuff and try again and then it worked.
    I dont think its the sheriko version.. or whatever its called.. but.. I do know that this issue didn't start before that install.. but after. Is there a PPA or what ever that is.. in here? its likely.. i tried a few different attempts to get an update or try to install.. so its likely there is some hanger on. BUT i have not the first clue how to recognize which is which and what to remove and how.

    I'll be truly waiting for your data. Do you have any sort of Terminal code you want me to try , so i can show you some sort of internal details?

    thanks for helping agian.

    Re: 904 updates the same xulrunner-1.9.1 files everyday

    yesterday, as has been true for a little while.. there was a selection of updates.. including this xulrunner.. today there was another set of updates.. but for the first time in two weeks.. NO Xulrunner update.
    i have checked it.. ran update manager on its own.. the whole bit.. but.. some how.. it seems maybe its not doing the repeat.

    I hope you will answer though.. it might return.. and i would like to find a way to make sure there is nothing wrong in my system.

    It seems that you might have enabled an extra repository for Firefox, so xulrunner is being update regularly. I don't think you have a problem, but once you post the results of the command above we will be able to find out.

    there's your culprit.
    I can't count with my fingers the number of reasons to keep my windows partition since just one would be too many And now it's gone...good riddance.

    Yep. As I suspected, there is nothing wrong with the OP system, they are just updates from ubuntu-mozilla-daily.

    You can disable it. Go to "System >> Administration >> Software Sources >> Thisrd-party Software" and disable the option deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozi...ily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

    It's not a repeat, it's an extra repository. The "main" part of the address is referring to the main repository of ubuntu-mozilla-daily not the main repository for Ubuntu.

    For example, the source updates only wine, with packages from wine.budgetdedicated.com:

    Code:
    deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt jaunty main
    In the other hand, the source below updates only mozilla applications, with packages from ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily.

    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    As you can see, they are completely different repositories, that updates different applications.
