Description of problem:
rhn-applet reports that openssl095a and openssl096 need updating. When running
up2date, up2date claims that the system is up2date. The rhn-applet button
continues to flash red.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update from 7.3 to 8.0

Additional info:

I updated my system at work from 7.3 to 8.0 and I don't have this problem there.
The one difference is that my system at home is using a red hat network
enterprise lisense where as I'm using the free update from home.

To be specific, rhn-applet says that I have openssl095a-0.9.5a-16 installed and
openssl095a-0.9.5a-18: is available and openssl096-0.9.6-11 is installed and
openssl096- is available. I do take note of the ":" at the end of the
"available" package name string.

I'm seeing the same kinda stuff here.

I upgraded 7.3 to 8.0.
now rhn_applet flashes red and claims I need to upgrade xinetd
(xinetd-2.3.7-2 -> xinetd-2.3.9-0.83)  (2.3.7-2 is indeed installed)
up2date says i don't have anything to upgrade.
checking updates.redhat.com shows that I don't have to upgrade xinetd.

I noticed that if I run rhn_applet as root is says my system is up-to-date.
If I run rhn_applet as a user it claims i need to upgrade xinetd.

This used to work fine in RH 7.3

I tried removing rhn_* up2date* and reinstalling it from 8.0 cd

Comment 2 Daniel Veillard 2002-12-03 15:56:08 UTC
Seems a problem of RPM database cache incoherency left after an
upgrade. We have a fix for that which will be propagated in
rhn-applet >= 2.0.4

This seems to be fixed.
