GNOME Software – multiple ‘cannot resolve hostname’ errors


#1

Hey,

when I open GS, almost every time I get like 6 of these in-app notifications, and have to close through them all.

(‘Cannot download updates from…’)

Basically one notifaction for every update source – extensions, Flatpaks, OSTree…

The problem is that I can’t reproduce it. It only seems to happen if GS has been running for some time. I don’t think it actually affects anything, but it is really annoying. What could be wrong? I haven’t seen these errors outside of Silverblue so I’m posting here first.

Cheers.

I have seen this occasionally, too. There is an upstream issue for this; you might want to +1 it and follow along any progress - https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-software/issues/487
