Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1024573
dependency error with redhat-support-plugin-rhev-3.2.1-2
Last modified: 2013-10-30 10:08:54 EDT
Description of problem:
If a customer runs a normal "yum update" on the RHEL system running RHEV-M 3.2.2 or 3.2.3, with redhat-support-plugin-rhev-3.2.0-11 installed, they will receive a dependency error due to the latest version of the support plugin available on RHN.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEV 3.2.2 or 3.2.3 with redhat-support-plugin-rhev < 3.2.1-2
2. yum update
Error: Package: redhat-support-plugin-rhev-3.2.1-2.el6ev.noarch (rhel-x86_64-server-6-rhevm-3.2)
Requires: rhevm >= 3.2.4
Installed: rhevm-3.2.3-0.42.el6ev.noarch (@rhel-x86_64-server-6-rhevm-3.2)
rhevm = 3.2.3-0.42.el6ev
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The "yum update" should complete successfully.
Most likely the support plugin should be added to the yum-versionlock list or the dependency requirements are too strict. Customers may want to run "yum update" on their systems without being forced to run a rhevm-upgrade.
This is a duplicate of bz101724. We have agreed the best solution is to create a document stating the user must run rhevm-upgrade to upgrade both rhevm and the plugin. After running rhevm-upgrade, yum update will behave normally. This bug exists because rhevm is version locked while the plugin is not and version 3.2.1 of the plugin requires a specific version of rhevm. Lee Yarwood has agreed to create the documentation.
The fix is addressed in the errata here. Closing this bug as fixed.
