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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have system with "openssl-0.9.8e-36.0.1.el5_11" installed
2. Attempt to remotely upgrade to "openssl-0.9.8e-37.el5_11"

With this debugging code added, this is the output:

Comment 2 Jan Hutař 2016-01-27 01:43:13 EST
And this is a python console session possibly touching the issue:

# python
Python 2.4.3 (#1, Jan  9 2013, 06:49:54)
[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-54)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import yum.packages
>>> current = yum.packages.PackageEVR(None, '0.9.8e', '36.0.1.el5_11')
>>> new = yum.packages.PackageEVR(None, '0.9.8e', '37.el5_11')
>>> current.compare(new)
>>> new = yum.packages.PackageEVR('', '0.9.8e', '37.el5_11')
>>> current.compare(new)

(sorry for attempt with epoch 0 missing)
Comment 3 Jan Hutař 2016-01-27 03:08:51 EST
Also on mine reproducer I do not see updates showing on webUI for that system. With both OLD and NEW openssl versions installed I'm getting:

# rpm -q openssl --qf "%{EPOCH}\n"
