Description of problem:
I needed kernel-headers but got the following weirdness when trying to install it:

[root@hostname root]# up2date -f kernel-keaders

   1:kernel-headers         ########################################### [100%]
[root@hostname root]#

The box is up2date already. That is, the version of up2date is:

up2date-2.8.45-1.2.1AS


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install AS2.1
2. Make sure the box is up2date (and kernel-headers is not installed)
3. Try "up2date -f kernel-headers", then try "up2date kernel-headers -f"
    

Actual Results:  The first example, "up2date -f kernel-headers" does not work.

Expected Results:  According to the man page for up2date, I should be able to:

   up2date [OPTION]... [PACKAGE NAME]...



Additional info:
Comment 1 Brian Brock 2004-03-05 13:25:31 EST
is this bit a typo: ?

root@hostname root]# up2date -f kernel-keaders

(kernel-headers misspelled as kernel-headers)


even if it isn't, please check that you can properly up2date
kernel-headers now (kernel-headers packages were updated today, and
I'm looking at all related bugs)
Comment 2 Kambiz Aghaiepour 2004-11-23 14:20:26 EST
Seems to work fine in:

up2date-2.9.14-1.2.1AS

Feel free to close.
