Description Kirk Morrow 2001-04-19 16:00:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i686)

After upgrading from a Wolverine install to Seawolf, whenever I try to use
up2date I get:
ERROR: Invalid Architecture and OS release combination

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a wolverine install run up2date on all packages.
2. Using the install discs, upgrage to RH7.1 (Seawolf)
3. Rebuild the RPM database (rpm --rebuilddb)
4. Run rhn_register and register new install.
5. Run up2date.

Actual Results:  No update occurs and I get message:

ERROR: Invalid Architecture and OS release combination

Expected Results:  Either packages should have updated or I should have
been told the machine is already fully updated.

Packages installed at time of failure:

I would check and make sure that both rhn_register and up2date are talking to
live servers.  So, run 'rhn_register --config' and make sure that serverURL is
set to 'https://www.rhns.redhat.com/XMLRPC' and run 'up2date --config --nox' and
make sure that serverURL is set to 'https://www.rhns.redhat.com/XMLRPC'

Several of the betas went out with configs pointing to beta-tester machines and
the such, and if you are still talking to those, they will give you that error,
as they know nothing of 7.1.
Comment 2 Kirk Morrow 2001-04-20 12:22:17 EDT
rhn_register was finding the correct server, but up2date was still looking at
the beta server.  I changed the servers (http and https) and it works now.

How is it that rhn_register knew what server to look for and up2date did not? 
Should the installer look for this situation and fix this automatically when
upgrading from a beta to a release version?
