User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i686)


Attempting to run up2date on a RH62 box to retrive the latest goodies
fails; on two other boxes which are more up2date than the problem box,
everything seemingly goes as planned. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/sbin/up2date -u -d


Actual Results:  $ /usr/sbin/up2date -u -d

Retrieving list of all available packages...

Removing installed packages from list of updates...
100.0%
Removing packages marked to skip from list...
100.0%
Getting headers for available packages...
100.0%
Removing packages with files marked to skip from list...
100.0%
Getting headers for skipped packages...
There was a fatal error communicating with the server.  The message was:
Unable to access RPM package: ['kernel-headers', '2.2.16', '3', '']


Expected Results:  $ /usr/sbin/up2date -u -d

All Done. Your system is now Script Kiddie(tm) proof.


On a working box, noticably missing is the kernel-headers-2.2.16-3 entry --
did someone break the FTP site?

Oops, forgot this bit of info:

$ rpm -qa | grep ^kernel
kernel-headers-2.2.14-5.0
kernel-2.2.14-5.0
kernel-source-2.2.14-5.0
kernel-2.2.16-3
kernel-headers-2.2.16-3
kernel-source-2.2.16-3
kernel-utils-2.2.16-3

Aha!  Figured it out -- somehow the RPM database had something wrong (how, I'll
never know); I ran a --rebuilddb right quick, and now the up2date agent is
working as expected.  Go figure.
