Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5439
rpm -U doesn't work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
I am running 6.0 with all updates (as of two days ago). My
rpm is 3.0.2-6.0.
If I do "rpm -Uv A.rpm B.rpm", and A is already installed on
the system, I get the message "package A is already
installed", but B does not install. This is exactly what I
would expect from "rpm -i", but not "-U" upgrade.
Shouldn't "rpm -U" install all new packages?
I should point out that this bug does not exist with rpm-2.5.5-5.2 on
Red Hat 5.2.
This isn't a bug, it's a feature in rpm-3.0.x. All command line
packages are included in a transaction set that is installed as
a single unit. If any package fails to install, then the entire
package set fails to install.
This duplicates bug 3277, see also bug 6182.
