Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 248805
yum does not search for updates to packages with broken deps due to other packages being updated
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:00 EST
Gah a crappy summary, but here goes.
I ask yum to update anaconda. The new anaconda requires a new libdhcp4client,
via a library requires. So now anaconda, anaconda-runtime, and libdhcp4client
are set to be updated. libdhcp4client update has a new soname for the library,
and thus removing the old soname will break the deps of some things currently
installed, namely mkinitrd, nash, and libdhcp. Instead of noticing this and
checking for updates to these packages to satisfy the update, yum instead bails
and states that it cannot resolve deps.
See output at http://jkeating.fedorapeople.org/whynoupdatecheck
Does this happen with yum 3.2.2?
