yum --downloadonly question
I upgraded a number of lab computers from Fedora 14 to Fedora 17 this summer and a process I used to push patches out to them en mass no longer works.
What I used to do was:
yum --downloadonly --security update
Then I would copy /var/cache/yum to a shared NFS drive and from each client run an update script that would include:
rm -rf /var/cache/yum
cp -pR /nfs/yum-cache /var/cache/yum
yum -C -y --security update
In fedora 14 this would run the update from the local cache (-C option) without prompting via -y so I could script/push security patches to all my clients. I use this method as occasionally some of the clients are offline and need to be manually started up - this way I can be sure each client has the exact same patches.
In fedora 17 when I do this I get the following error message when running the yum -C command on the client:
[Error -1] Check uncompressed DB failed
I ran with -v -e 10 -d 10 and it's failing after printing: "Setting up Package Sacks".
The following yum plugins are enabled: downloadonly, presto, security, tsflags, verify, versionlock
Is this process simply not allowed anymore? If not is there an alternate way to do what I'm attempting?
