Description Peter Toye 2019-04-03 09:59:26 UTC
After updating to I ran the Check for Updates screen (to see if it would find the help files). The attached window appeared and stayed there not doing anything.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click the Check for Updates icon or use the Help | Check for Updates menu item
2.Watch the static window appear. Wait for nothing to happen.

Actual Results:
Nothing happens. The (I assume) rotating flower at the left of the progress bar doesn't do anything and the progress bar doesn't advance. Also there's an odd %PERCENT% to the right of the progress bar.

Expected Results:
I would expect the progress bar to advance, and the flower to show some activity.

Reproducible: Always

Hello Peter,
Thank you for reporting the bug. To be certain the reported issue is not
related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your
Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

I've tried it again and it's working now. Don't know how that happened as it was a hard error last month. Possibly spring has brought the flower into bloom. So I've changed it to RESOLVED.

Thanks for your time - sorry it was wasted.
