Description Melanie Corr 2019-10-30 18:28:04 UTC
Document URL:

Section Number and Name: 4.3. Upgrading Satellite Hosts to Puppet 5

Describe the issue: There is a bug at the moment that means updating katello-agent pulls in gofer, which then corrupts the process of updating

Suggestions for improvement: Add to the docs to update gofer first so that it does not get corrupted by yum update until the bug is resolved.
