Description Need Real Name 2001-08-17 09:13:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2sound i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1)
Gecko/20010607 Netscape6/6.1b1

Description of problem:
When I run up2date, everything seems to work fine at first, it welcomes me,
checks for retrives a list of all packages, shows me the packages that i've
asked for it to skip, shows me the packages that i can update.  But when I
check all the boxes, and click next, it checks for dependencies, and then
almost immediatiely I get this error:
"There was a fatal error communicating witht the server.  The message was:

Error Class Code:30
ErrorClass Info: Invalid value for entry.
Error Message:  Invalid value liblber.so.1 (<type 'string'>)

It then tells me to submit this bug request.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run up2date from the command line

Actual Results:  see description above

Expected Results:  it should have downloaded the packages and installed my
system.  This is happening on several of my systems that I need to update.  

Additional info:

I called per-server support about the problem and she asked that I submit
this bug to bugzilla and also attach my /etc/sysconfig/rhn directory, so
it's on here as well from the montage.montagedata.com server that I'm
having the problem on.
