Description of problem:
Trying to run up2date (4.3.11-2) to get the latest updates for FC2
Test 1 I got this tracedback:

Bernd, can you please check whether the problem persists with current
Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2004-04-22 12:54:13 EDT
I haven't seen the problem in the past two weeks. If I remember
correctly it only occured when the Fedora mirror that I use was
rsyncing to the Fedora master site.
Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2004-05-05 22:33:54 EDT
Not sure if it helps to report in that I dont see this on my test3
box. But if this is only viewable if there is a mirror syncing problem
on the server side, I'm not really sure how many people can try to
reproduce this. Does this really need to be a blocker?
Comment 4 Colin Charles 2004-05-07 07:51:58 EDT
I don't see this on the latest up2date - up2date-4.3.17-1 - so this
might have been a problem that disappeared with what was included in
test1. I'm with Jef on this, does this really sound like a blocker?
Comment 5 David Juran 2004-05-25 05:30:06 EDT
I still se this with up2date-4.3.19-1. Anyway, it's not quite straight
forward to from this message deduce that the mirror is broken.
