Comment 1 John Matthews 2009-03-27 17:01:39 EDT
Not able to reproduce this with latest ISO.

Yet I confirmed this behavior was broken on grandprix earlier.

On grandprix's case package_arch_id data was null for all packages from a rhel 4.7 client.  That limited PackageManager.upgradable() to return 0 packages.

select count(*) from rhnServerPackage where server_id = 'XXXXXXX' and package_arch_id is not null;

this would return 0

when running this on a different install (still looking at the same rhel 47 client) I see package_arch_id data is available

select count(*) from rhnServerPackage where server_id = '1000010617' and package_arch_id is not null;
