Description Craig White 2008-05-18 11:54:50 EDT
Description of problem: Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: I don't know...it's sort of a one shot pony Steps to Reproduce: 1. Fedora 8 - up to date 2. Ran preupgrade as root from commandline 3. Wizard proceeded successfully until it hit the point where it was supposedly downloading installation binaries and it hung there, until I closed it and restarted it and then it started over and it went fine from that point. Actual results: See above Expected results: See above Additional info: Since I started it from command line, I have standard out/error in console which I captured... *** from the first launch ********************************************* # preupgrade Loading "priorities" plugin Loading "fastestmirror" plugin Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * anaconda-upgrade: mirrors.usc.edu Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * anaconda-upgrade: mirrors.usc.edu No package matched to remove Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 198, in on_assistant_apply self._do_main() File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 206, in _do_main self.main_preupgrade() File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 349, in main_preupgrade self.pu.retrieve_treeinfo() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/preupgrade/__init__.py", line 381, in retrieve_treeinfo cp.readfp(tif) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/ConfigParser.py", line 286, in readfp self._read(fp, filename) File "/usr/lib/python2.5/ConfigParser.py", line 462, in _read raise MissingSectionHeaderError(fpname, lineno, line) ConfigParser.MissingSectionHeaderError: File contains no section headers. file: <???>, line: 1 '-rw-r--r-- 1 1002 1002 386 May 7 21:52 .treeinfo\r\n' *** from the second launch ********************************************* You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root [root@lin-workstation opt]# [root@lin-workstation opt]# preupgrade Loading "priorities" plugin Loading "fastestmirror" plugin Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * anaconda-upgrade: mirrors.usc.edu Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * anaconda-upgrade: mirrors.usc.edu No package matched to remove Not enough space in /boot/upgrade to cache stage2.img.

Comment 2 Will Woods 2008-11-09 20:47:50 EST
The error message - and the fact that it doesn't happen every time - makes me think this bug only happens with certain mirrors. That would also explain why I can't reproduce it myself, since our test lab has its own mirror. I'm guessing this might be specific to FTP mirrors - I'll attempt to reproduce.
Comment 3 Ed Avis 2009-05-28 07:24:35 EDT
I believe I have seen the same upgrading from F10 to F11 preview: bash-3.2$ preupgrade Loaded plugins: blacklist, refresh-packagekit, whiteout Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 237, in on_assistant_apply self._do_main() File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 256, in _do_main self.main_preupgrade() File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 483, in main_preupgrade self.pu.figure_out_what_we_need() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/preupgrade/__init__.py", line 780, in figure_out_what_we_need self.update() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 2656, in update installed_pkg = self.rpmdb.searchPkgTuple(installed) IndexError: list index out of range Again, it hung after downloading something, but before starting to download the packages. I am rerunning preupgrade now.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 20:58:12 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '9'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 5 Ed Avis 2009-06-12 11:44:40 EDT
The version number of this bug should be updated to 10 or 11, since it also affects upgrading from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11. However the bugzilla web interface doesn't give me the option to change the version, although I am logged in. Could someone do it?
Comment 6 Will Woods 2009-06-15 15:10:39 EDT
That's a totally different bug, Ed. If you can reproduce it with preupgrade-1.1.0 upgrading to F11 final, please file a new bug. As for *this* bug, nobody seems to be able to reproduce the specific failure from comment #0, so I'm going to assume that it was caused by a bad interaction with certain FTP mirrors (which have since been fixed or removed). If anyone sees that specific error, feel free to reopen this bug, and please give me the URL of the mirror that caused the problem.
