Description Paul Moffitt 2002-04-06 19:37:39 EST
Description of Problem: Yesterday (april 7 2002) I was trying to use update agent, which I have successfully used before.  However on several 
occasions , specifically when I tried to download kdeadmin or gnorpm, I received the message: a package providing lib rpmio-4.0.3.so could not be 
found.  However when I went to the redhat channel in openprojects,  they told me to check a few things, and evidently I do have that particular file.  
Other update downloads worked ok.  As I said, I have not come across this problem before.

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

How Reproducible:  I don't know if you can reproduce it, other than using update agent and trying to download those two particular updates.

Steps to Reproduce:

which version of the up2date client?

If you have packages which require an older version of
rpm, and there isnt a newer version of that package
available from us, you get an unresolveable dep, as
you indicate.

But I would also make sure you have the latest up2date,
since it has better handling of these cases.

No response, and I haven't seen any reports
like this with current releases, so
closing as "currentrelease"
