F19 fix updates repo for kickstart installation on netinst.iso
Last modified: 2013-06-29 04:03:01 EDT
I'm trying to enable updates repo in my kickstart file using:
When I run the install process I'm getting following errors:
/tmp/packaging.log:05:54:45,354 ERR packaging: failed to get groups for repo updates
/tmp/packaging.log:05:55:58,196 ERR packaging: failed to get groups for repo updates
/tmp/program.log:05:54:05,680 ERR program: Error running arch: No such file or directory
I tried adding --ignoregroups=true, but the error about the groups still comes up (not sure what is the impact of that error).
"arch" from product log I believe refers to arch variable used in /etc/anaconda.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo
Would hardcoding the arch and release numbers in /etc/anaconda.repos.d fix the problem and is it a good solution?
I know updates not really useful at the moment, but in few months it will be very nice to install the system with the updates. I have no way of verifying this (whether updates repo was used or not), yum update right after the install doesn't find any updates.
I have just tried adding custom repo:
repo --name="fed-updates" --mirrorlist="https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metal
I still get the same errors which leads me to believe there's no problem with parsing variables from fedora-updates.repo file, and updates repo is enabled...
I have also tried adding:
repo --name="fed-updates-testing" --mirrorlist="https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metal
After installation I logged in as root and tried running:
yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing and there were no packages listed for update, which means the repo is working. Closing not a bug
