Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5756
install upgrade option fails for almost stock 6.0 install
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
hrmm.. my desktop installed great... my server on the other
hand.. which is the exact same setup (okay.. a few custom
compiled stuff.. but nothing outside of /usr/local not in
rpm format) -- and only a few other rpms installed-- the
upgrade script python or something another barfs out with a
huge meaningless error message and reboots the machine...
hrmm.. I ended up installing each package with -F and
satisfying the deps with --test and such
the last line was :rpm error
It all worked fine by hand.. databse was fine... this one
has me baffled. Luckily i have been with redhat since
mothers day was just being replaced.. so.. I hacked my way
into 6.1 with only minor headaches...
bug not for kdeadmin.
Sounds like the installer found a package on your system which was marked for
upgrade but for which there was not a corresponding package. Problems resulting
from this are fixed in the latest installer (it plays better with missing
packages) available in beta.
