This looks like the yum upgrade actually failed.

On the system with this issue "rpm -qa | grep ansible" shows that the ansible-tower-server package is not installed.

Additionally, "yum history info" shows the following info about the transaction:

A subsequent "yum install ansible-tower-server" succeeded and seems to have resolved the issue.

Satoe, does that error mean anything to you?

Comment 3 Nick Carboni 2017-11-13 17:02:43 UTC
Could this have been a disk space issue at the time of install Luke?

Comment 4 Nick Carboni 2017-11-13 17:07:37 UTC

Comment 5 luke couzens 2017-11-14 09:31:07 UTC

your right this probably was a disk space issue, as I did forget to reconfigure the partitions prior to yum update. The second time I remembered and it worked correctly. This can probably be closed as not a bug unless Satoe still wants to take a look at that error.


Comment 6 Oleg Barenboim 2017-11-14 10:02:08 UTC
Satoe - per Luke's comment (, would you please review.

Comment 7 Satoe Imaishi 2017-11-14 12:50:10 UTC
We're good to close.
