Description of problem:
I used yum yesterday to update all but 9 packages that are locked with dependencies. I noticed the rhn icon was throbbing red this morning. Hovering over it says there are 78 updates. Opening up2date shows a varying number of packages depending on how I open it (normal behaviour depending on mirror selected.) The select all button is not functioning. It selects only the first package. When I select a package, the Forward button does not become available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Start up2date 1.
List packages available 2.
Select all or select a package 3.
Actual Results: Select all only selects the first package
Selecting a package does not reveal the Forward button as ready to use. Clicking it does nothing.
Expected Results: Select all should have selected all packages for update.
Selecting any package should "un-gray" the Forward button and allow downloading.
I am also experiencing this, this is the error given to the terminal:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/gui.py", line 1160, in selectAll

TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'instance' and 'int'
I too am having this problem, and the output on my terminal window is the same.
In my case the _only_ time the package list "un-grays" is when I have at least
one kernel selected for installation. Since I installed those in a seperate run
I cannot install any updates through up2date.
I have the exact same problem with the exact same terminal output. I had run
up2date and it had installed the newest kernel from 1177 to 1208, while doing
so it seemed to lockup. Then when I came back after reboot to try again, the
condition above occured.
Going back to 1177 and uninstalling 1208 i was able to get the forward button
"Select all packages" only selects the next line item after selected kernel
I am now using command line up2date to update but am having problems with
I am also having the described problems. "Select All" only selects one package
(the first one), and the "forward" button never un-greys...
Hate to say it, but I have this problem as well.
Gerry Tool > because this seems to be causing a bunch of people issues I would
suggest up-ing the severity of the bug.
up2date-4.4.14-2 is still broken on my system.
up2date was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5. Only FC5 and
FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security fixes
only. If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please change the
product to Fedora Extras and the version to match. If you can verify that the
bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version appropriately.
The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.
We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now. The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.
Closing per previous message.
