It was reported here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/73424/)
And I blogged about it here: http://maglife.co.uk/2010/02/19/magento-connectpear-channel-not-updated/
and added a bug report about it here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/bug-tracking/issue?issue=8521
and then someone else mentioned it here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/79710/

Please can someone with any control over this take a look.

It is reproducible from a fresh install:

[code]
tar xvzf magento
-1.4.0.1.gz
cd magento

./pear mage-setup .

config-set etc etc

./pear install magento-community/B4Before_ProtxDirect
downloading B4Before_ProtxDirect
-1.3.2.21.tgz ...
Starting to download B4Before_ProtxDirect-1.3.2.21.tgz (28,166 bytes)
.........
done28,166 bytes
install ok
channel://connect.magentocommerce.com/community/B4Before_ProtxDirect-1.3.2.21

ok so latest version is 1.3.2.21let's remove it and add an older version.

./pear uninstall magento-community/B4Before_ProtxDirect
uninstall ok: channel://connect.magentocommerce.com/community/B4Before_ProtxDirect-1.3.2.21

./pear install magento-community/B4Before_ProtxDirect-1.3.2.18
downloading B4Before_ProtxDirect-1.3.2.18.tgz ...
Starting to download B4Before_ProtxDirect-1.3.2.18.tgz (28,040 bytes)
.........done: 28,040 bytes
install ok: channel://connect.magentocommerce.com/community/B4Before_ProtxDirect-1.3.2.18

so we should now have an upgrade available right ?

jools@travelmate:~/temp/magento$ ./pear list-upgrades
Channel connect.magentocommerce.com/community: No upgrades available

NOPE!

I get this on both 5.2.10-2ubuntu6.4 (ubuntu) and 5.2.6-1+lenny6 (debian)

Something must have happened to the channel data at some point that is causing a problem for pear, unless I have overlooked something, but it makes no sense to me.

Greetings.

Yes, I’m aware of this and recently put in an internal ticket to have it looked at.

I don’t have any updates at this time, but I will let you know when I do.

Rhonda

Appreciate the reply and good to know the problem is known. Still amazed it has been like this for a year though, perhaps it is unusual to want to upgrade extensions occasionally. Thanks again.

Another three months pass. This is now broken for one and a half years +

Almost given up hope of it being fixed. Surely varien can see that not being able to upgrade community extensions is quite a significant problem ?

Will there are still problems with this. You could use the following to download extentions directly. This can often be a lot safer than just pressing upgrade, as sometimes your entire magento store could upgrade to the latest version.
