rpm install/update does %100 but doesnt install


hey guys,

1st post here, i have just gotten redhat ES3 installed onto a vmware virtual system, and had started doing manual updates of some of the packages....I didnt bother noting down my activation code, and its at home....so will do that tomorrow and use it....but today i am seeing a wierd issue that has me scratching my head...

when i run an rpm install, it shows the package name, and does the Hashes from 0 to 100% and then goes back to the prompt.....

it does this also for an Update (-Uvh).......

on running an rpm query it still shows old version, or for the install, doesnt show the software....

if does copy the files into /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and SPECS, but thats all it seems to do...

please help

e.g.
# rpm -ivh amanda-2.4.4p1-0.3E.1.src.rpm
1: amanda ################## [100%]
#
# rpm -qa aman*
#

also increasing verbosity shows no issues....sizes match, snaity check ok....everything seems to work...

still no info showing with rpm -qa ???

what am i missing ?
