Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492597
rhel 4 clients do not list out upgradable packages
Last modified: 2009-09-10 16:34:53 EDT
Description of problem:
on 3/23 build
1. register rhel 4 client
2. software packages, upgradable
lists no packages
will update bug more in a bit
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;
Wes, are you able to reproduce this?
moving to on_qa to test for a reproducible scenario
tested 3 rhel4 clients 2 work 1 does not..
I'm guessing the one box is fubar'd
I'll keep an eye out for this..
Verified on staged (Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090724.0) with updates from Aug 20, 2009
system > Software > Packages > Upgrade is properly listing upgradable packages
moving to RELEASE_PENDING
