Description of problem:
This is correct. Simply remove the defined and it works.

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

This bug is due to changes in perl. This bug may also apply to 23. I do not know at this time.

F23 has currently same bug and results in an empty report after amdump with active option "mailto".

Mail contents is mostly empty:

After applying this patch, it creates a report, but finally states:

amreport: Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/Amanda/Report/human.pm line 1203.
Comment 3 Uwe Menges 2015-12-19 19:41:02 EST
I don't know if it's related, but the initial email report sent from amdump was empty, and I had trouble to get the report emailed again. It seems the amreport is empty as soon as the output goes to a pipe.
I finally copy&pasted it with tmux from the terminal to a temporary file and emailed that.
Comment 4 Uwe Menges 2016-01-12 17:34:52 EST
I think I have a better patch.

amanda-3.3.8 use the following line:
  my $to_report = !defined $tries || !@$tries;

This change made things work for me.  Thanks!
Comment 7 Petr Hracek 2016-02-09 04:39:13 EST
This issue should be fixed by commit http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/amanda.git/commit/?h=f23&id=c6e090ceb846020b43893aaac1779faf3551a60e

I have included amanda-3.3.8 in rawhide and F23.
