Description of problem:
It would be very nice to have redhat-config-packages be capable of
updating using update ISO's e.g. update RH ES 3 Update 2 to Update 3.
Support for --isodir is there but "update" button is not functional.
There are tricks available but this should be supported out of the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have RH ES 3 Update 2 system
2. Get ISO's for Update 3
3. redhat-config-packages --isodir=$PATH_TO_UPDATE_3_ISOS
Actual Results: Update button is hobbled
Expected Results: Update to Update 3
system-config-packages doesn't at present support upgrades. It's in
the plans for eventually, but requires a fair bit of work to get to be
Thank you for response. Anaconda "linux upgrade" works for RH ES U2
to U3 update in our environment in spite of the boilerplate warning
in the release notes.
