Description david.hagood 2007-02-12 23:48:28 EST
Description of problem:
Every time yum tries to update glibc and any other packages, after much gyration
yum fails with

"Error: No Package Matching glibc.i686"

However, forcing YUM to install glibc will work, and then the remainder of the
update will run to completion.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for there to be updates to GLIBC and anything else
2. yum -t -y --skip-broken upgrade

  
Actual results:
Yum dies with
"Error: No Package Matching glibc.i686"

Expected results:
Yum should install the new GLIBC and the other packages.

What's the output of 
  rpm -q --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}" glibc
?
Comment 2 david.hagood 2007-02-14 19:04:02 EST
glibc-2.5.90-17.i686
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-25 15:16:00 EDT
Does this happen without skip-broken?
Comment 4 david.hagood 2007-04-25 20:16:04 EDT
I can check the next time an update to glibc is pushed out and this happens...
Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2007-04-27 09:10:29 EDT
Cannot confirm with "yum update":

Looks like a plugin bug then.

So it's been over 6 months since the last update on this and we've never heard
back about it occurring any other time.

I'm going to close this as insufficient data b/c it sure seems like whatever was
going on here was transient.

If there is an update to it, please reopen.

What ver of yum is this, now? And this is on rhel5?

running the following works:
  yum update glibc glibc-common glibc-headers glibc-devel
