Summary0006756: Discover application update error

Start the "Discover" application to detect software updates and display: Update (831), but clicking "Update" will cause the update to fail due to unsatisfactory dependencies. Later, if you want to update a certain software separately, you can't quickly choose Check the individual ones, and found that the application crashed during the operation and could not run.

Steps To Reproduce

The steps to reproduce the problem are as follows:

  1. Start the Discover application to detect software updates
    2.Check for updates
    3.Check all update
    4.Click update
    5.Clicking on other update options causes stuck

The demonstration process has been made into a dynamic picture and uploaded to the attachment

Additional Information

I hope that it can be enhanced to cancel all check options, which is sufficient to quickly single-select some to update

When you choose to update all, if there is a dependency that is not satisfied, all of which cannot be updated, it is recommended to skip the program with unsatisfied dependencies and proceed to the next installation when updating all.

Update kali to "Linux kali 5.7.0-kali1-amd64 0000001 SMP Debian 5.7.6-1kali2 (2020-07-01) x86_64 GNU/Linux", which solves the problems of Discover crash and inability to select all and non-select all,
But still unresolved: When you choose to update all, there is a program that is not satisfied and the update fails and other updates cannot be performed.
Suggestion: When you encounter all programs with unsatisfactory dependencies, replace them at the end of the update directory, and continue to update the next program. Install this order first to update the dependencies that are satisfied, so that because the software has been updated, the previous dependencies are not satisfied. It can also be updated.
The update program has been manually screened, and the dependent conditions are updated first to expand the dependent conditions to satisfy the previously unsatisfied conditions, and the results have been updated.
And found a new problem: when the Discover link update service failed to run for the first time, it prompted: "Unable to load the application, please check the network", but click the update button here, the update service resumes and you can link to the update server
