Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
The crap above. Likely yum is not able to produce something usable from the brokenness of the repos.

Expected results:

Comment 1 James Antill 2009-07-23 20:20:41 UTC
 Ralf, this is repeatable ... it always just exits? And always after downloading a couple of pkgs?
 I presume you aren't hitting C-c, right?
 This is just one box?

 Can you strace it and attach the result.

>  Ralf, this is repeatable 
Repeatable, in the sense of "happened more than once on the same machine", yes.

Repeatable, in the sense of "how to reproduce it", no.

It happened more than once within ca. 1 hour on the same machine, but wasn't repeatable on others.

> ... it always just exits?
No, this breakdown was interspersed with other breakdowns (404's, missing files).

I can try, but ... as I tried to indicate, earlier today, most update-repo mirrors yum redirected me to, were broken.

Seemingly, the repomd.xml didn't match the repo contents (Wild guess: mirror-manager is defective), while rpmfusion managed to screw their repos at the same time ...

So, I guess, it'll be very difficult to reproduce this issue.

I think this is the same root cause as 518720.


Comment 4 seth vidal 2009-09-03 16:00:23 UTC
I'm going to mark it as a duplicate unless I hear otherwise.
