Description Corey Welton 2014-08-13 17:02:51 UTC
Description of problem:

Capsule installer will fail, referencing a missing katello-ca package.

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

How reproducible:
Unsure yet.  It has been suggested that re-running installer might fix this.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Register target system to your satellite
2.  Attempt to install capsule installer

Actual results:
Failure, with the logfile pointing to 

[ERROR 2014-08-13 12:47:43 main]  Execution of '/usr/bin/yum install -y katello-ca' returned 1: Loaded plugins:

Expected results:
Capsule installs

Additional info:
Apparently this issue has been known upstream for a while.  re-running the installer seemed to work, and I guess that is a workaround.  But this is a terrible user experience.

Specifically, it's trying to install a package "katello-ca" that isn't available, or doesn't exist?

Comment 4 Ivan Necas 2014-08-15 08:54:41 UTC
Yes, rerunning the capsule-installer should be a workaround for this,

The fix is included with the fix for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=873753 and the upstream patch is opened here https://github.com/Katello/puppet-capsule/pull/12/files#diff-60ae41fd0a31977447947f59940ee9a4R234

Updated as part of https://github.com/Katello/katello-installer/pull/94

Comment 7 Corey Welton 2014-08-27 20:51:00 UTC
This seems to be ok now.  Will reopen if it resurfaces.
