Description Anchor Systems Managed Hosting 2005-08-15 00:57:02 EDT
Description of problem: When upgrading a machine from ES3 to ES4, starting the process like so: up2date --upgrade-to-release=4ES rpm up2date to get the latest package tools fails; subsequent runs of up2date cannot find rhnlib, pyOpenSSL, or libxml2. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): up2date-126.96.36.199-2 How reproducible: Twice now have attempted an upgrade from ES3 to ES4 this way, both times up2date fails after the immediate upgrade. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start with ES3 install. 2. up2date --upgrade-to-release=4ES -l 3. up2date --upgrade-to-release=4ES rpm up2date 4. up2date --upgrade-to-release=4ES redhat-release Actual results: [root@ark root]# up2date --upgrade-to-release=4ES redhat-release Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 33, in ? from up2date_client import up2date File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 32, in ? import depSolver File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/depSolver.py", line 11, in ? import packageList File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/packageList.py", line 20, in ? import up2dateComps File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2dateComps.py", line 9, in ? from rhpl import comps File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/rhpl/comps.py", line 5, in ? import libxml2 ImportError: No module named libxml2 Expected results: up2date completes task successfully. Additional info: I believe it's because the versions of rhnlib, pyOpenSSL, and libxml2-python that are already installed are python2.2 libraries, and hence not available to python2.3 which is used by up2date in ES4. Versioning the dependencies correctly to ensure that these libraries are identified as out-of-date w.r.t. the newer up2date.

I also got this error running up2date, and I have to admit that I'm pretty new to linux I ran up2date, got a message saying there's a newer version of up2date available, so as usual I accept and proceed to install, but a dependency error pop up saying I need rhnlib >=1.8.7 so I skip that update my machine with the older version of up2date first. then retry, still nothing. Then I went to ftp.linux to find and download: rhnlib-1.8.7-3.noarch.rpm, installed that reran up2date and I got this error [root@bgblue /]# up2date Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 27, in ? from up2date_client import repoDirector File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/repoDirector.py", line 5, in ? import rhnChannel File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rhnChannel.py", line 10, in ? import up2dateAuth File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2dateAuth.py", line 5, in ? import rpcServer File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rpcServer.py", line 23, in ? from rhn import rpclib ImportError: No module named rhn I also tried with rhnlib-1.8.2-1.p23.1.noarch.rpm and rhnlib-1.8- 6.p15.noarch.rpm and also tried to just install the latest version of up2date manually with up2date-2.9.14-1.2.1AS.i386.rpm, up2date-4.4.69-25.i386.rpm, up2date-gnome-2.9.14-1.2.1AS.i386.rpm and up2date-gnome-4.4.69- 25.i386.rpm . Each of them have a differnt dependency error. I'm not sure how to proceed from here, please advise.
