Description of problem:

The spacewalk-repo-sync fails.This problem appeared after latest updates, I think is related with epel. I've attached also the rhn_taskomatic log

How to reproduce:
1. It can be reproduced on SW 2.4 or 2.3 on Centos 7 (7.1.1503) with latest updates by running:

/usr/bin/spacewalk-repo-sync --type=yum --channel=centos7_base_ch


2 . On fresh SW install of 2.3 or 2.4 on centos 7.1 and same result.
    On centos 6 Sw 2.4  works fine.

/usr/bin/spacewalk-repo-sync --type=yum --channel=centos7_base_ch
| Channel: centos7_base_ch

Comment 1 Sune Beermann 2015-11-13 05:41:03 EST
I see the same thing, upgraded my CentOS 7 install and spacewalk broke, both 2.3 and 2.4. Reinstalled to CentOS 6 and everything is working as expected.

After the latest centos 7 updates this issue has gone. Thanks for the involvement. Please close the call as issue doesn't manifests anymore.
