Description Miroslav Vadkerti 2014-02-14 13:38:27 UTC
Description of problem:
yum won't work with advisory strings that contain external respin suffix. Respin s sometimes also happen when errata had been already shipped and is live. I currently tested only with RHN classic.

For example on a RHEL6.5 machine I try to list updates for this errata:
https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0127.html

That has advisory name:
RHSA-2014:0127-2

# yum updateinfo list --advisory RHSA-2014:0127-2
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register.
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.
Advisory "RHSA-2014:0127-2" not found applicable for this system
updateinfo list done

I have to remove the suffix to make it work:
# yum updateinfo list --advisory RHSA-2014:0127
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register.
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.
RHSA-2014:0127 Moderate/Sec. librsvg2-2.26.0-6.el6_5.3.x86_64
updateinfo list done


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-utils-1.1.30-14.el6

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL
2. Register to RHN
3. Try to list an existing advisory with suffix in the name

Actual results:
No advisory found

Expected results:
Advisory found as without suffix

Additional info:
I will try out with the subscription manager also ...

Comment 1 Miroslav Vadkerti 2014-02-14 13:57:19 UTC
Does not work also if registered via subscription manager
