Description Glen A. Foster 2003-08-27 12:14:20 EDT
Description of problem: I ran up2date on our lab's "reference x86 box" running
AS2.1 -- I hadn't updated it since 25-Jun, so there were a few packages to
update (list included at the bottom).  After downloading the packages and
installing them, the GUI screen essentially hung.  I was running the SMP kernel
2.4.9-e.25 when this happened.  Looking at the shell window where I (luckily)
spawned up2date by hand, I noticed:

# up2date
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/gui.py", line 909, in doInstallation
    up2date.installBootLoader(kernelsToInstall)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 608, in installBootLoader
    __install_grub(kernelList)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 624, in __install_grub
    ret  = grubcfg.installNewImages(kernelList,test=0)
AttributeError: installNewImages

... after making the up2date window disappear, I ran up2date again, and it told
me there are no new packages to upgrade.  It's just weird and I thought I should
report this, regardless of how difficult it might be to reproduce.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q up2date kernel-smp
up2date-2.8.45-1.2.1AS
kernel-smp-2.4.9-e.3
kernel-smp-2.4.9-e.16
kernel-smp-2.4.9-e.25

How reproducible: I have no clue how reproducible this is, so in lieu of that,
I'll append the list of RPMs upgraded.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHAS 2.1 everything install
2. Occasionally upgrade via RHN -- last one was 25-Jun-2003
3. Upgrade on 27-Aug-2003
    
Actual results: Traceback

Expected results: No traceback

Additional info: Packages retreived from RHN server and upgraded were:

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2003-08-29 19:06:17 EDT
grab the errata packages, this fix is included 2.8.46
Comment 2 Suzanne Hillman 2003-10-03 13:38:05 EDT
Has been over a month since a solution was indicated, with no followups saying
it's still broken. So, I'm closing this. If there is still a problem, please reopen.
