I am using Fedora 16. Every time I run Azureus, it says that it just completed an important update and needs to restart. How can I fix this? Obviously restarting it is not helping.

There could probably be numerous reasons for this to happen. My first guess would be wrong permissions on config directories, i.e. something like ~/.azureus owned by root, such that an update initiated with a non-root user account cannot succeed.

But have a look at the VuzeWiki page on "Failed Updates", the procedure explained there could help you.

Maybe you get some diagnostic output when you lauch it from a terminal, possibly with a debug/verbosity flag [1] (try adding --help for further information). This is all rather general advice, I have no clue about Azureus, sorry.

[1] From another Wiki site:

-Dazureus.log.stdout=1 Send all log output to standard out / console / terminal.

Maybe this is informative.
