Description Michael K. Johnson 2003-09-10 14:14:06 EDT
Description of problem:
I ran with up2date --nosig from a recent version of up2date
it told me there was a new version in the channel and offered to just update
that version of up2date, and I said yes
when it tried to restart up2date, I got the help message
$ up2date --nosig
New Up2date available
Restarting up2date
$ Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
No interactive mode available
Please specify either -l, -u, --nox, or package names as command line
arguments.usage: up2date [OPTIONS] [<packages>]
(blah blah blah)
yes, I am going through userhelper

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
updating from up2date-3.9.24-1 -> up2date-3.9.25-2

How reproducible: reliably

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install up2date-3.9.24-1
2. run up2date --nosig as a normal user (--nosig may not be required)
3. accept updating to new version of up2date from RHN
4. profit!
Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2003-09-10 16:00:10 EDT
fixed in cvs, should land in 3.1.26 or so
Comment 2 Michael Young 2003-09-10 18:52:45 EDT
Presumably ^3.1.26^3.9.26^. Also this bug is a duplicate of Bug 103185.
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 2003-09-11 10:39:10 EDT
Happened again this morning up2dateing (again, with --nosig) to up2date-3.9.26-2
Comment 4 Chris Ricker 2003-09-11 13:49:04 EDT
<aol>Me too, though I didn't use --nosig</aol>
Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2003-09-11 17:03:39 EDT
up2dating to 3.9.26 will still break (bug is in <= 3.9.25).
Should go away updating 3.9.26 to anything newer. 
Comment 6 Chris Ricker 2003-09-16 19:06:31 EDT
This appears fixed -- worked for me going to up2date-3.9.28-2
