Simulating Updates

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello Fedorians: I am new here (my first post) and I am just trying Fedora 17 KDE on a Virtual Box setup on my 3GHz machine with 3GB of ram and plenty of hard drive space. The host is XP pro SP3. It seems to be working fine, I have access to the internet and all, but there is an icon near the clock that says something about 140 updates are available. When I click it, a window pops up and lists the updates with all of them checked and when I click apply, a message comes up saying "Simulating the Update." It goes through the motions but returns with the updates still liste (HowTos)
