Description Michael Hipp 2000-01-18 21:26:36 UTC
When attempting to download & install a number of the packages shown by Red
Hat Update Agent via the browser, the Up2date frequently reports that it
can't resolve dependencies.  Even with "Attempts" set to the max value
(10).  This happens in particular when attempting to download
"control-center", "gnome-core", and "gnome-libs".  I believe I have
installed the latest version of Up2date.  Any help?

before the agent tells you it cannot resolve dependencies, which packages are in
the selection box?

Comment 2 Michael Hipp 2000-01-20 00:36:59 UTC
I just tried it again.  I selected "control-center" which it listed in the box.
It then made 10 attempts to resolve dependencies and ultimately died with the
error "Unable to resolve dependencies ...".  Yesterday I had similar symptoms
when attempting to retrieve "gnome-core" or "gnome-libs".
