Description Miroslav Vadkerti 2011-06-02 05:44:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Looks like the RHN server has some issues (serverURL=https://xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com/XMLRPC) and this causes rhn plugin to traceback. I think this should not happen and an error message should be printed instead of a traceback.

Machine I can now reproduce this 100%:

# yum -y update
Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, downloadonly, fastestmirror, filter-data,
              : keys, kmod, list-data, protect-packages, protectbase, rhnplugin,
              : security, tmprepo, verify, versionlock

Comment 1 Miroslav Vadkerti 2011-06-02 05:49:47 EDT
This currently happens on all machines subscribed to rhn.redhat.com (LIVE)
Comment 2 Šimon Lukašík 2011-06-02 08:03:35 EDT
*** Bug 710044 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Milan Zázrivec 2011-06-03 04:48:25 EDT
Do these systems have location aware update (aka Akamai) enabled?
Comment 4 Milan Zázrivec 2011-06-03 07:08:21 EDT
This seems to have been a temporary problem with Akamai -> closing.
