You may want to specify some more information about the version of the
incriminating packages you are running. Please get the latest up2date and rhnlib
packages from:


and let us know how it turned out.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-07-25 19:20:04 EDT
Looks like an old version. None of the current versions use cgiwrap
any longer.

I also have this same message when running up2date.  I upgraded from RedHat 7.3
to Limbo and I got this message after a successful and event free install.

A "rpm -q -f /usr/sbin/up2date outputs


I notice the CD-ROM shows 2.9.13-7.x.9 as what have should bave been upraded.

Looking at /root/upgrade.log shows that it was left out of packages to upgrade.

The only extra thing I can think that may be of interest is this.  When I was
upgrading, I selected the custom upgrade box (for no good reason).  I then just
used the boxes that were auto check-marked for the upgrade.  Perhaps this
confused it?

Upgrading to limbo1 is known to miss packages (bug 68255), the next beta should
fix this problem.

looks to have been an update issue
