Description Gerard Ryan 2015-02-26 19:46:05 UTC
Description of problem:
I've been trying to update an F21-server VM to Rawhide, but it kept stalling at the installation of cockpit-ws (not an 'upgrade', since that subpackage doesn't exist for f21...I guess it gets pulled in by something else). I had a VM snapshot, so I was able to prove it reproducible. I was also able to do a complete successful upgrade to Rawhide by first removing cockpit altogether from F21, then doing the "yum distro-sync".

How reproducible:
Seems to be 100% of the time currently.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. From a cleanly installed, then updated F21 server, attempt to jump to Rawhide, following the steps on the wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum#To_rawhide

Actual results:
Rawhide packages get downloaded, and start to update. When the cockpit-ws package is being applied, it appears to hang.

Expected results:
It doesn't hang.

I've just successfully run "yum install cockpit" on the newly updated Rawhide, so the problem seems to be limited to upgrade from "latest F21" -> "latest Rawhide" (or maybe broader, I haven't tried F22 -> Rawhide).

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

This works for me, detailed output in https://github.com/cockpit-project/cockpit/issues/1943.

This may have been a temporary Rawhide issue. Is it still broken for you?

Hi Dominik,

I don't currently have time to test this. I just saw it once when I was upgrading a VM and figured I'd report it. To work around it, I just removed cockpit before upgrade, then installed again after. If you've proven it to work now, that's plenty good enough for me! :)
