Description of problem:
This action's status is: Failed.
The client picked up this action on 2005-07-25 15:47:12 EDT.
The client completed this action on 2005-07-25 15:47:13 EDT.

Packages to be removed:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to interpret error message
2. Realize that it's vague
Actual Results: The only line that makes an attempt to explain why the action failed follows:
> Client execution returned "Fatal error in Python code occured []" (code -1)
This does little to suggest why the action failed, or how to correct the problem.
Expected Results: Error messages should indicate the condition(s) that caused the problem, and optionally suggest potential ways to resolve the condition(s). This message does neither.
The error message means there was a problem deep in the code. Normally there
should be a stack trace (i.e. a lot of internal information from the
interpreter) logged into /var/log/up2date
Can you please provide the version of up2date you're running (rpm -q up2date)
and attach the output of:
and we'll try to reproduce it locally.
