From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007

Description of problem:
I used up2date 10-30-2003 and it had to update about 20 packages.

During it installation of kernel-source up2date died because it could not
install the package. The problem now is, that all packages that where to be
installed after kernel-source are de-installed!

Now, on my system openoffice and, of course, kernel-source are missing! There
were another 10 packages that might not be there, but unfortunately I updated in
a console window so there is no scrollback buffer available to find out what
other packages are missing.

I can live with this happening during the test-phase of fedora, but I think this
is a showstopper for production!


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a package that exits with an error together with some good packages
2. up2date --update 
3. look at rpm-database, all packages that were to be installed after the bad
one should be missing

Expected Results:  At least there should be an error message, that packages are
missing now. Best would have been to rollback the install / or to continue
installation and then to show an error message that the defective package could
not be installed

Not exactly the same bug, but it's a symptom of the same underlying problem. 
Too bad it's a WONTFIX :-(

This looks like a closer relation to my bug #108652 than the one it's been
marked as duplicating here.
Comment 3 Alexandre Oliva 2003-10-31 12:12:54 EST
Well, it's two bugs: (i) up2date didn't sanity-check before handing packages to
the rpm transaction (108652), and (ii) rpm transaction failed and removed
packages (106514).  Unfortunately, it can only be a dup of one bug in bugzilla.
 And then, since it's a dup, it doesn't matter all that much anyway.
