up2date selects packages that have already been previously
installed by another method. If any of these packages are
selected for update in up2date, up2date fails with a message
that the package is already installed.
up2date uses standard RPM database queries to determine the state of your
system. It doesn't interfere with manual RPM updates or other rpm-based update
Please give a SPECIFIC example of your problem.
the up2date "menu" of packages is built dynamically. It should *not* include
packages that you already have installed.
I can't duplicate this behaviour here. Please give a specific example. Show
the output of rpm -q <packagename> and then verify that running up2date still
displays that package as available for download and installation.
