can't update up2date after expired certificate


i got the notice from rh to go to rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-267.html to get the new up2date. i'm not completely stupid, but i can't figure out how to perform what should be a simple task. i downloaded the package, but when i do:

rpm -U up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm

I get:

error: Failed dependencies:
up2date = 3.1.23.1 is needed by (installed) up2date-gnome-3.1.23.1-5

and when I do:

rpm -U up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm

I get

error: Failed dependencies:
up2date = 3.1.23.2 is needed by up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1

and I can't rpm -e up2date-gnome-3.1.23.1-5

I realize this update must be easy, but i guess i'm too ignorant, and the info at rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-267.html doesn't help me. can someone give me a clue?

if you have both rpm's in the same directory you could try:
rpm -U up2date*.rpm

Blue screen? I don't know about that. But my "rpm" command did hang, in both of the following invocations:

rpm -Fvh
(as suggested here at the RedHat site )


and

rpm -U up2date-*.rpm

which seemed to work for the previous person.
If I were a little blue guy with one arm and no hair, I would be scratching my head, like this:




Thanks for any suggestions! LinuxQuestions.org rules!

Uh... Mabuhay ka Beatlelane? that's about all the Tagalog you'll get out of me!

Glad it worked for you. Those instructions are what I came across on the Redhat site, and also rustychait's suggestion above.

I wonder why my machine is hanging. Perhaps I will redownload the rpms and see what happens.

(ps. Does anyone remember when Redhat released a bad version of rpm? I th ink it was around 7.2. That was even trickier than this, since you couldn't update the rpm rpm! Yikes, I'm getting dizzy.)

I'm not successful :P



[root@biggerdaddy downloads]# rpm -Fvh up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
python >= 2.2.2 is needed by up2date-3.1.23.2-1
rhpl >= 0.81-2 is needed by up2date-3.1.23.2-1



[root@biggerdaddy downloads]# rpm -Uvh up2date-*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
python >= 2.2.2 is needed by up2date-3.1.23.2-1
rhpl >= 0.81-2 is needed by up2date-3.1.23.2-1

I was probably slightly out of date before the SSL expired.. so.. what do I do?

I have similar problems on all my RH9, RH8, and RH7.1 boxes :P

Do I have to resolve all the dependencies MANUALLY now??? Gosh, I hope not.. thats why I went with redhat long time ago.. nifty up2date

Still trying to figure this one out...

From redhat:

Quote:
"Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
the desired RPMs.
Where do I find a "list" of all my installed RPM's? This is where I am getting lost.......

You can get such a list by:

rpm -qa

`q' and `a' standing for "query" and "all."

By the way, I resolved this issue with the following steps:

1) Rebuild my rpm database... first, delete the old one:

/var/lib/rpm/__db*

Doh! Blasted enter key.

You can get such a list by:

rpm -qa

`q' and `a' standing for "query" and "all."

By the way, I resolved this issue with the following steps (as root). I'm not sure exactly where the error lay, so I'll just tell you everything I did:

1) Rebuild my rpm database... first, delete the old databases (and in case something goes horribly astray, back up the old ones ):

rm /var/lib/rpm/__db*

2) Now do the actual rebuild command:

rpm --rebuild

This takes a long time, be patient.

3) Delete the up2date rpms you downloaded. I have a sneaking suspicion that mine were corrupted.

4) Re-download them, but this time, run the commands

md5sum up2date-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm

and

up2date-gnome-3.1.23.2-1.i386.rpm

If the result matches the md5sums on the RedHat page, then the rpms are definitely good.

Then try again with your

rpm -Fvh up2date*

If it installs, you should be able to run up2date again.

(I'm no guru, so if I've said anything drastically wrong here, someone correct me... It worked for me.)

HTH!

You can always try using the --force option with rpm. First check to make sure that your pyhton and rhpl RPM's are installed.
[root@jaws root]# rpm -q python rhpl
python-2.2.2-26
rhpl-0.93.4-1

I think the --force option is only availble for the installation of RPMs. It won't hurt you to remove the up2date and up2date-gnome packages with the --nodeps options, then try to install them with rpm -ivh.

Let me know if this works.

Thanks for the up2date*.rpm line solved my problems.

That's one thing about the automatic install feature of Redhat I'm not too fond off. I right or double click it runs through an installer but I never know that it works.
