bug#39682: 26.3; Help window for list-packages disabled

Possible solution!

I loaded emacs -q, ran list-packages, look at the info for help-fns+.el and understood that it would need to be re-compiled with a newer version of emacs.

I just re-compiled help-fns+.el as per instructions in the info file and the problem is solved.

I have much snow to shovel here - may not check email for several hours.

Hopefully further testing won't turn up further hiccups.

cheers

Noam, I am not familiar with edebug.

Can you give me some more code examples?
Basically just put point on the source code of describe-package, and hit
C-u C-M-x, that will instrument the function.  Then run
package-menu-describe-package with "?" or however, and you will stop in
describe-package.  Press space to step through each expression.

Hmm, very strange.  Could you step through describe-package with edebug,
and see how this condition is getting taken, even though package-desc-p
should apparently be returning t?

    (if (not (or (package-desc-p package) (and package (symbolp package))))
        (message "No package specified")
