Description John Bass 1999-11-21 09:07:36 UTC
up2date selects packages that have already been previously
installed by another method. If any of these packages are
selected for update in up2date, up2date fails with a message
that the package is already installed.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-11-23 16:16:59 UTC
up2date uses standard RPM database queries to determine the state of your
system.  It doesn't interfere with manual RPM updates or other rpm-based update

Please give a SPECIFIC example of your problem.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-11-23 18:14:59 UTC
the up2date "menu" of packages is built dynamically.  It should *not* include
packages that you already have installed.

I can't duplicate this behaviour here.  Please give a specific example.  Show
the output of rpm -q <packagename> and then verify that running up2date still
displays that package as available for download and installation.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-11-29 15:28:59 UTC
user had a corrupted RPM database from a buggy version of RPM.  Not an Update
Agent problem.
