Description Alan Polinsky 2002-06-02 11:29:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510

Description of problem:
Though rpm -q reports perl-Perl-RPM-0.291-2 as installed, rpm -e
perl-perl-RPM-0.291-2 reports package as not installed. rpm --rebuilddb does not
help. I have been trying to use up2date for the last two months. According to
up2date, the following modules are out of date:

rpmfind, rpm2html, gnorpm, kdeadmin, rpm, rpmbuild, rpm-devel, rpm-python. I am
running rpm 4.0.2 release 8.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run up2date -fv at command line ( or up2date & in an xterm window
2.I am notified of the modules listed above as being in need of update

Actual Results:  I get a message: There was a package dependency problem. The
message was : unresolveable chain of dependencies.
perl-Perl-RPM-0.291-2 requires librpm.so.0
perl-Perl-RPM-0.291-2 requires librpmio.so.0 I have tried to uninstall
perl-Perl-RPM-0.291-2 and have been told that the package is not installed, but
giving an rpm -q perl-Perl-RPM-0.291-2 reports it as installed

Expected Results:  Packages should have been updated

Comment 1 Alan Polinsky 2002-06-03 08:14:27 EDT
With the help of someone from one of the usenet groups, I was able to remove the
offending rpm with the command rpm -e perl-Perl-RPM, leaving off the sub-part.
All is fine now
