Description Gerald Teschl 2001-02-09 13:40:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)

If I try to upgrada a bad package (e.g. incomplete download) rpm will give
the correct error, but the exit code is 0.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
[root@soliton tmp]# touch glibc-2.2.1-6.i686.rpm; ls -l
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Feb  9 19:46
[root@soliton tmp]# rpm -U glibc-2.2.1-6.i686.rpm; echo $?
error: glibc-2.2.1-6.i686.rpm does not appear to be a RPM package

Expected Results:  exit code > 0

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-02-10 10:28:10 EST
Fixed in rpm-4.0.2-0.36.
Comment 3 Gerald Teschl 2001-02-12 05:11:08 EST
BTW: Shouldnt it read "does not appear to be an RPM package"? (a-> an)
