Description William Jon McCann 2014-11-05 13:45:33 UTC
I had a set of updates today. I noticed an app in the list that I no longer needed. So I went to the Installed page and removed it. When I did this I noticed the size of the stack switcher changed abruptly. This was because the number of updates disappeared from the Updates switcher button. When I went back to the Updates page it told me "Software is up to date" and the timestamp was just now. Clearly there are updates so this isn't true.

It's important to provide accurate information about available updates. Marking this as 3.16 target.

removing from tracker

Removing an application invalidates the update list for reasons. Now the update check is much faster the update list repopulates itself much faster.
