Description of problem:
Capsule installer will fail, referencing a missing katello-ca package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
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:
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?

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
This seems to be ok now. Will reopen if it resurfaces.
This was delivered with Satellite 6.0 which was released on 10 September 2014.
