Description Bernhard Fastenrath 2007-02-23 12:18:08 UTC
Description of problem:
The package updater threw an exception and couldn't be restarted without reboot,
claiming another application was accessing the software database.
The exception summary was: TBccefa5c9 yumRepo.py:426:__get:RepoError: failure:
repodata/updateinfo.xml.gz from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : pirut                        Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 1.2.8                       Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release     : 1.fc6                       Build Date: Fri 10 Nov 2006 05:16:51 

How reproducible:
software update

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "View Updates..." from the notification area.
2. Select "Apply Updates" from the software updater.
Actual results:

Expected results:
Software update

Additional info:
The exception indicates a problem with mirror servers. I couldn't find any
configuration for pirut that selects a preferred mirror server but just in case
it does - I used ftp://ftp.uni-koeln.de/redhat/linux/6.0/en/os/i386/ or 
ftp://ftp.stw-bonn.de/pub/fedora/linux/core/6/i386/ to install the system.

Crash Dump from Exception

I had the same exception occur and have attached the crash dump I received. 
When the Updates Available message pops up it indicates there are 4 updates

1) Click on View Updates
2) Enter Root Password
3) App sits for about 4-5 minutes at Retrieving update information and then
produces the exception.

I also tried running the Software Updater separately from the menu with the
same results.

If I run yum update at the command line it shows 6 updates available (see
below).  It looks like I could run this through to completion, but wanted to
wait and report the exception.
