Pressing "Check Now" for Xamarin.Android updates when the internet is not connected just does nothing - http://screencast.com/t/37ceQLwHxlB8 it should let the user know that they need to connect to the internet to check for updates.

Latest monodroid on master should have this fixed.
Comment 3 Mohit Kheterpal 2013-11-27 08:28:30 UTC
Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

VS 2013
MTVS 1.10.12

With no internet connection when user click on check now link then it gives message to connect to internet.
