Description Rob Close 2005-02-11 12:37:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
After installing fc3test3, up2date registers several hundred updates
available, but gives a critical message to update up2date first. Upon
doing so, the update-agent applet displays 'no updates availble'
constantly. Reinstalling did not help either. Tried via command line,
got warning message:

'warning: can't access /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources'

then the gui pops up and gives no channels (which were available
before the update). I checked that directory and no sources file exists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date-4.3.69-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Reboot the system
2.update-agent applet runs, gives famous blue-white checkmark
3.no updates available (0 ignored)
    

Expected Results:  ??? updates available

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous comment.  If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the
appropriate version.  The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant
there.

up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a
security issue.
