Description of problem:
up2date spits out an error instead of downloading source packages for 7.2.
Seems to happen no matter what the package. Happens in both CLI and GUI

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure up2date to get .src.rpm's with binaries
2. run up2date
3. Select some packages and proceed

Actual Results:  Dialogue appears with this info:
Error while retrieving package ORBit-0.5.8-4.
The message was:
404: "Not Found" while attempting to get

Expected Results:  Should instead be downloading binaries and source.
Worked in 7.1, not after upgrading to 7.2.

Comment 1 Greg DeKoenigsberg 2002-04-29 19:02:35 EDT
Looks like a few bugs relating to source RPMs and up2date.  Does this deserve a
single bug for tracking all of these issues?
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-04-30 15:38:26 EDT
should all be fixed now, I belive this particular case was
a temporary server problem anyway
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2002-05-15 08:46:58 EDT
Fix confirmed.
