Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247954
Blocking yum access
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
yum-updatesd and pupplet is blocking access to yum instead of informing about
updates. Yes, it shows the info, but what when I don't have time to update and
want install software?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run Fedora, when updates daemon is enabled and try to install software, when
updates are available.
Not blocked access.
Why is this filed against puppet ? Doesn't look like a puppet problem to me ..
please reassign to somebody more appropriate
Reassigning to Jeremy, since he's the owner of yum-updatesd

Strace of yum.
I have the same situation. If I try to install software I get the following
message: (e.g. from "yum install httpd"). My updates don't happen. I suspect
that I may have another repository active
Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 16872.
Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit...
Worse; yum-updatesd doesn't respond to kill -1 or kill -15. I have to do a
kill -9 and risk (in theory) database corruption.
This is with: yum-updatesd-3.2.8-2.fc7
Attached is an strace of yum-updatesd sitting there doing not much.

I have the same problem, and no update until kill process which hangs...
Not sure if I should say this, but openSUSE has similliar issue with their
zypper :> .
Fedora 8's yum-updatesd should be a lot better in this respect
