Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171664
Improper encoding of urlopen error (using IPv6 on non-IPv6 system)

*** Bug 171665 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
There was some bugzilla sercer error and this bug is empty, so I'll paste
orginal bug report:
When I type "yum update" and yum try to download something from server that uses
IPv6 following error appears:
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (97, 'Rodzina adres\xc3\xb3w nie
obs\xc5\x82ugiwana przez protok\xc3\xb3\xc5\x82')>
Of course error is good (I don't have support for IPv6) but encoding of this
error message is improper.
It should be (wget
Connecting to ftp.ipv6.funet.fi|2001:708:10:7:290:27ff:fe3a:9623|:80...
nieudane: Rodzina adresÃ³w nie obsÅugiwana przez protokÃ³Å.
This should hopefully be better with the improved encoding support in python 2.4
It's still a issue with python-2.4.3-8.FC5 and yum-2.6.1-0.fc5 on FC5.

Could you check it again in f7 or rawhide? thanks.
Still valid for F7 (python-2.5-12.fc7, yum-3.2.1-1.fc7):
[Errno 4] IOError: [Errno ftp error] (4, 'Przerwane wywo\xc5\x82anie systemowe')

*** Bug 331581 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
okay, at the risk of sounding like a broken record: Can you try this from latest
Alternatively, if there a way an ipv4-only person can test this?

refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs
for releases which are no longer maintained and closing them.
If this bug is still open against Fedora Core 1 through 6, thirty days
from now, it will be closed 'WONTFIX'. If you can reporduce this bug in
the latest Fedora version, please change to the respective version. If
you are unable to do this, please add a comment to this bug requesting

I can easily reproduce this on a dual-stack (v4/v6) system with the latest rawhide:
1. export LANG=ru_RU.utf8
2. yum update (don't enter 'y' at download prompt yet)
3. service network stop
4. (enter 'y' at download prompt)
Выполнить [y/N]: y
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3,
Thank you for the bug report. Changing version from "6" to "rawhide".
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
