Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438015
Cannot update using YUM
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
When I boot my machine running Fedora 8, yum-updatesd runs and tells me I have
almost 300 security updates needed for my machine (I haven't updated in a
while). I try to download and run the updates, and yum requests I insert the
Fedora 8 disc, when I do that the application seizes and generates a dump,
(which I've attached).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.2.7
How reproducible: difficult, depends on the machine configuration
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run yum-updatesd
2. Wait until the program prompts for disc
3. Insert disc and press OK
4. Here is where my error occurs
I receive the error report from yum.
yum should gather the header information from the fedora disc and download the
updates, since I seem to be unable to connect to the fedora repos.

Dump from yum-updatesd
Are there any read errors reading from your CD drive in dmesg?

to this report.
In addition, I believe that pirut-1.3.31 (now in -updates) should help handle
cases like this
