Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23971
up2date -u gives nonsensical RPM error about dependencies
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:42:49 EST
6.2 system just upgraded to 7.0. Was using latest up2date bugfix errata on
6.2, just installed latest up2date errata for 7.0. up2date -u complains
that ['libk5crypto.so.3'] depends on libk5crypto.so.3, which makes no sense
to me, especially since that file exists on my system.
[root@rdu25-4-135 pkgs]# up2date -u
