Description Pete Zaitcev 2001-08-07 05:20:06 UTC
Description of Problem: "up2date -l" yields the following: For this beta release of Red Hat Linux, the up2date program has been configured to point to a different Red Hat Network server. This server (beta.rhns.redhat.com) can be used to obtain updated packages for the duration of this Red Hat Linux beta test ONLY. After the beta test has been completed, this Red Hat Network server will no longer be available for use. Retrieving list of all available packages... Traceback (innermost last): File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 889, in ? main() File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 292, in main sys.exit(batchRun(argObj.getLong("list"), pkgNames, fullUpdate)) File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 708, in batchRun progressCallback = percentCallback) File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date/up2date.py", line 1353, in getUpdatedPackageList progressCallback) File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date/up2date.py", line 1044, in removeInstalledPackagesFromList pkgCount = len(pkgList) TypeError: len() of unsized object I am not even sure it was not my error, because it smells like an empty list of packages. However, up2date better print a message about it instead of crashing. The system has a Raw Hide of 8/30 (downloaded one day later). How Reproducible: Every time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Do rhn_register (one time) 2. up2date -l 3. Actual Results: Traceback as quoted above. Expected Results: Curious myself... First time running up2date :) Additional Information:

fixed now... This is a combo of two things... the server letting you sign up, but for a release that has no channels avalable in the beta server (rawhide, for example) and a bug in the gui that crashes if you have no channels ;-> The latter is fixed, the former shouldnt ever be an issue in production enviroments.

I think we can close it now. It is a little bit hard to test conclusively, because I do not want to screw the system back as it was screwed before (with attempted upgrades from beta).
