Update / Repair also updates apps -- not preferred

Postby jas8522 » Thu Sep 12, 2013 9:18 am

When manually running the update / repair utility in the Installatron admin, when apps are configured to auto-update, the utility will do this as part of the repair.

This is not preferred for us because it means a repair can take a very long time when there are a large number of apps to update. Perhaps its time to separate the repair from the update utility? That said, I think repair & update makes sense, but that it should only refer to Installatron itself and not installed apps.

Update/Repair can be executed with a --quick argument that will skip all installed application related tasks. There's currently no UI option for this, but one is scheduled to be added in one of the next 9.0 builds.
