Description Greg Morgan 2002-11-01 14:42:12 UTC

Description of problem:
I was updating my samba server with errata from about 10/7/2002 to 10/24/2002. 
This is a headless server.  I sshed into the server from another 7.3 PC in an
xterm window as I have always done with updates. I then issued the up2date
command.  All was going well until the last update, ypserv, RHSA-2002:223.  The
update bar was at 100%, when the gui up2date command was hung.  I went back to
the command window and found the traceback listed below.  I had no choice but to
hit the cancel button, which still functioned.  up2date when executed again says
that the system has been updated.  An entry for kernel (2.4.18-17.7.x) was
placed in /etc/grub.conf, etc.

Are there some additional steps that I can perform to check what caused the failure?

1.Detailed description was provided in the Description text

Actual Results:  Traceback

Expected Results:  Clean update

Additional info:

I have a rpm script that I run on my other computers.  I will more than likely
run it on the samba server to make sure all is well.

This will be fixed in the next release.
It's a "up2date updating up2date in place" bug, which
makes it hard to duplicate.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2003-02-14 13:46:41 UTC
I'm seeing no problems upgrading from up2date-3.0.42-3 to up2date-3.1.1-1.
