^^ That case is a known bug because etags are mistakenly not removed on uninstall. It has been patched and will be included in the next RPM release.

Comment 3 Lindani Phiri 2018-11-14 13:28:42 UTC

Is there a workaround for the etag bug?
Seems like an important issue to resolve given our reliance on egg updates.


Comment 4 jcrafts 2018-11-14 13:30:33 UTC
Currently the only workaround is to delete the *.etag files in /etc/insights-client
