Description Vishal Gaikwad 2010-04-26 10:33:05 EDT
Description of problem:
The option to upgrade existing packages from satellite web interface i.e System Profile -> Software -> Packages -> Upgrade this doesn't work as expected for x86_64 systems.

If i386 and x86_64 package is installed on the system with one being latest and other slightly old - still the older one wouldn't be listed as available for upgrade under the system profile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHNS 530

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. WebUI -> Systems
2. Select a x86_64 system
3. Software -> Upgrade
4. Make sure you are a list of package for both the arch available in the list
5. Select the i386 package only and update.
6. Repeat steps 1-3 and you will see that now it doesn't list the x86_64 package
Actual results:
Upgrade list doesnt show x86_64 package as available

Expected results:
It should show the package that was not upgraded

Additional info:
Reproduced locally on RHNS 530. It seems that entries for both the packages are removed from the cache when only one arch of the package is updated.

I think i have this figured out and fixed.  The downside is that is requires a schema change in addition to a java side change.



Basically the query was not taking into consideration arch information on what was already installed.  I changed it to take this into consideration and restrict by the Arch but this also caused an issue.  

firstboot-tui's arch actually change during the RHEL 5 lifecycle, so it started off as a noarch package and became an x86_64 package.  So i had to restrict by arch only when it was relevant.  

It's amazing how confusing such a simple little thing can become....
