rhn_check: Error refreshing package list (code 20)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:11 EST
Description of problem:
Trying to use rhn_check to refresh the package list at RHN for system (sid=1001662560) fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Schedule a package list refresh at RHN
2. Run rhn_check -v on client system
rhn_check reports: ERROR: refreshing remote package list for System Profile
RHN web app reports: Client execution returned code 20 (Error refreshing package list)
Client execution returned code 0 (rpmlist refreshed)
This should be fixed in a hopefully soon to be released errata.
Versions of 3.0.40 or higher include a fix
I get the same error for all of the RedHat 8.0 systems I manage however I've
found a temporary workaround. If I run up2date -p after manually installing new
RPMs it will update the package list in my RedHat Network account.
