Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 208845
error using Add/Remove software - Exception - no more mirrors to try
Last modified: 2013-01-10 03:57:47 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to add/remove program I get the attached error popup.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always no packages are shown.
Usually the exception popup occurs aswell, but not always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Applications, Add/Remove Software
The exception popup occurs - see attachment
List of packages is shown
Created attachment 137538 [details]
It looks like yum is failing to download the repomd files, and since it is
unable to, it errors. pirut then displays a nasty traceback rather than a
friendly error message.
pirut 1.2.4 should have a fix for the error message.
not sure about the root cause of being unable to download the file, however.
Now when I try Add/Remove Programs, that message does not appear so I get
Nothing is shown under browse
If I do Search, then check a package and do apply I get a popup:
Unable to verify (packagename)
when I click details I get
Public key for
is not installed
I have tried it for packages gftp and openssl097a
I get the same public key warning from yum, preceded by this line:
warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: Header V3 DSA signature: NoKEY, key ID 897da07a
How am I meant to do updates ?

It looks like you just need to import the gpg keys. Running the following should
find /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/ -name RPM-GPG* | xargs rpm --import
thanks - that lets me do updates.
Will it be setup automatically in future ?
I still get no entries in the browse window of add/remove programs

You're welcome :)
> Will it be setup automatically in future ?
More automatically, anyways. yum/pup/etc will prompt you when its missing a gpg
key to import one, showing the the key signature. The idea here is that you can
verify that it is the correct key, so as to not compromise your system.

'browse' shows package groups. RHN does not have a concept of package groups,
which is why this screen is empty. the next release of pirut will notice that
there are no groups, and instead bring up the 'list' view by default.
Thanks - I think that answers all, so you can close the case.
when I schedule a hardware refresh and do
Error refreshing system hardware" (code 12)
Is there a quick fix, - if not which component to I log this under ?
