Description Hao Chang Yu 2018-10-18 02:57:26 UTC
Description of problem:
Perform a CV incremental update by adding 1 erratum (RHBA-2018:1916) to a CV. This erratum only have 7 following rpms but Satellite ended up copying 110 rpms. glibc is 1 of those rpms. Satellite copied the latest version of glibc but didn't copy its dependencies such as "glibc-devel" and "glibc-headers". These 3 rpms must be installed with the exact same version (if older version of glib-{devel|headers} is installed). Therefore, the yum update failed on client side.


How reproducible:
1) Create a CV and add rhel-6-server-rpms repo to the CV.
2) Filter the CV to exclude all errata after 11/05/2016 (RHEL 6.8 release date)
3) Publish the CV.
4) After that do the incremental update

hammer content-view version incremental-update --errata-ids RHBA-2018:1916 --content-view-version-id <cv version id>

Actual results:
Satellite simply copy all the available latest version of the dependencies without checking the minimum requires version by the parent rpms. When running "yum update subscription-manager", yum doesn't even install those 100 dependencies.

Expected results:
Satellite should only copy the needed dependencies.
