Description of problem:Upgrading VAResearch 6.2.1 (RH 6.2) to RH 8.0. fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Consistently.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from CDRom
2.Select graphical or text instalation
3.Select U.S for language and Keyboard
4.Select "Upgrade" for type of install. (Choose customized packages or not)
Instalation stops after spending some time "searching for packages" with error
message that it is probably a bug and to please post to bugzilla.
Expected it to contine and upgrade the system.
I know my rpm database is corrupt, but "rpm --rebuilddb" does not clean it up.
I have packages that I know are installed because the work fine, but rpm -q
<the known installed package> yields the message that it is not installed.
Created attachment 90078 [details]
The file anaconda asked me to save and send with bug report
This should have been sent with the original bug report.
This is fixed in rawhide.
