User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0 SeaMonkey/2.33 Build ID: 20150308222504 Steps to reproduce: In Seamonkey 2.32.1, also in the new Seamonkey 2.33 (and recently in Seamonkey Nightly, not verified today) Check for updates results in the message "Update XML file malformed (200)". Actual results: Check for updates results in the message "Update XML file malformed (200)". Expected results: Either report that there are no updates or update the next incremental software build.
I've seen this the past few days on Seamonkey Nightly; I'll check there and update this later.
Seamonkey Nightly 20150304003001 has this issue; I will try to snag a newer nightly build and try this again.
Seamonkey Nightly 20150312003001 still has the issue so it's being carried in Nightly Builds in the x86 Linux branch.
Anything helpful in http://kb.mozillazine.org/Software_Update#AUS_Update_XML_File_Malformed_200 ? Are you using the same profile for all versions? That may screw up things.
CC Callek. Are we serving an invalid update XML file?
I think ewong was toying with updates on nightly. ...
I managed to get my hands on a Linux box (x86), downloaded 2.33, 2.32.1, and 2.36a1 nightly. They all managed to check for updates with no errors. Though not being familiar with getting it running, perhaps I did it wrong? 1) d/l 2.33, 2.32.1 and 2.36a1 nightly. 2) tar xvjf <tarball> 3) ./seamonkey/seamonkey -P test2 -no-remote -console 4) Help->Check for updates masinick, can you clarify if you've tried it with a different profile?
Flags: needinfo?(ewong) → needinfo?(masinick)
Yes, I was able to download a nightly, though the update had an unusual way of confirmation that the download worked
@reporter: Still a problem for you? I did at least 1 (more or less) successful check for update with following update on a Linux UBUNTU 64 bit Virtual Machine, see "Bug 1228572 - Localized German Version updates with en-US next version"
Never confirmed by a second user, no response, so I close this one for now. @Reporter: Please feel free to reopen this Bug if you still can reproduce the problem with a current SeaMonkey version and a current OS and if you can contribute a step by step instruction how to reproduce the problem due to <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/QA/Bug_writing_guidelines> (containing every key press and every mouse click) how to reproduce the problem reliably.
