Description Callan Tham 2003-12-11 16:20:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing gpa with up2date fails with "TypeError: unsubscriptable
object" on Fedora Core 1.

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

How reproducible:
Just running "up2date gpa" triggers the error.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "up2date gpa"
2. up2date fetches rpm headers
3. Process "explodes" while testing package sets/resolving dependencies.
4. Process dies with "TypeError: unsubscriptable object" message.
Actual results:
# up2date gpa

Is this possibly a duplicate of 99396

triage->duplicate #99396

Comment 2 Callan Tham 2003-12-11 18:12:39 UTC
I've tried using the method described in Comment #3 in Bug 99396, but
it still doesn't work.

File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/repoBackends/yumRepo.py", line
104, in getHeader
  File "rpmSourceUtils.py", line 24, in saveHeader
TypeError: unsubscriptable object

Same error as first reported. However, when used to update installed
components up2date works; I've just done an update on net-snmp and it
finished without a hitch.

I have also tried installing other packages eg w3m using up2date, but
it would die with the same error.

Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2004-01-28 18:37:02 UTC
I'm not sure this is a dup, since the earlier report deals with
up2date versions without yum repository ability. That being said, I
can't reproduce this issue by running up2date gpa on my fc1 install. It

Can you try to clear out your /var/spool/up2date directory?

Comment 4 Jef Spaleta 2004-01-28 18:49:07 UTC
Created attachment 97302 [details]
sources file I used to install gpa using up2date

This is attached as a reference, to confirm the problem is not a misconfigured
sources file. This sources file was the one i was using with i installed gpa
using 'up2date gpa'

Comment 5 Youssef Makki 2004-01-28 19:10:52 UTC
Worksforme using sources mentioned in Comment #4.
I installed gpa using 'up2date gpa'.

Comment 6 Jef Spaleta 2004-02-12 00:37:10 UTC
I'm closing this report as worksforme.
Since comment #5 confirms comment #4 source list is working,

Please, before ropening this bug, make sure you are using a known
working sources list. This could very well be a syntax error in the
original reporters config file. It would also be nice if the original
reporter would attach the non functional source file for review.
