Did you run out of disk space or something?  Please post a complete transcript
of this failing.
Comment 2 Paul La Marre 2003-04-07 14:15:07 EDT
No additional information unless you can point me to a log.

Up2date simply gives an error that it can not expand the
rpm.  Very general error message.  Drive space is not an
issue -- most other rpm's are ok.

I will be attempting to update to 9 as soon as the bandwidth
on your side allows.
Comment 3 Joe Orton 2003-04-07 14:33:53 EDT
I've seen some problems where doing:

  # rm -f /var/spool/up2date/*

has fixed problems, where a corrupt package has somehow been cached.  Can you
try that? 
Comment 4 Paul La Marre 2003-04-13 14:13:56 EDT
After "rm -f /var/spool/up2date/*" and download of rpm, I ran rpm and it 

Looks like the issue has to do with the content of the spooling area.
Exactly what ??  


Comment 5 Joe Orton 2003-04-13 15:32:51 EDT
I don't know, but up2date should handle this I guess.
