Description Alan R. Hedler 2003-03-18 02:53:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98) Opera 7.0  

Description of problem:

I recently upgraded system from 7.x to 8.0, deleted old system, registered new 
one. I get email notification saying there are updates required, system shows 
updates available, but RHN web page shows system is up-to-date, no updates 
available. Running up2date updates system OK, but would like web page to work as 
it had previously. New system has Demo entitlement. I was able to install 
packages via the web page, but updates are never shown for my single system on 
the web page.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1.Delete system from web page, remove systemid file, run up2date --register

2.Receive errata notification email

3.Check web page, says system is up-to-date. Icon on control panel shows updates 
available, none ignored.


Actual Results:  As in 3 above, system status always indicates up-to-date 
despite email notification of updates required, despite up2date showing updates 

Expected Results:  Web page should show available updates/fixes for this system, 
allow me to schedule updates online instead of having to manually update with 
up2date. When this system was 7.2 (or 7.3?), worked properly. Now it is 8.0, has 
not worked properly once. System name is ahedler3.

Additional info:

This could be sort of considered a security problem as it requires me to 
manually run updates for any fixes needed instead of being able to schedule them 
via the web page. In any case, it's a pain in the butt and should be fixed.

This is a known bug in the 8.0 up2date client - please run:

    up2date -p

from the command line to update the package list. After that it will work
correctly. Closing as a duplicate of bug #83226
