Re: [Spacewalk-list] discrepancy between web interface and yum

Some things to check/verify:

  • Verify the repos reporting packages available for update via yum are the same repos in the Spacewalk web portal.
  • Taskomatic might be behind/stuck/stale. Try giving all the Spacewalk server services a restart and force the system to check in again. Wait a few minutes for the changes to reflect in the web portal.
    • Tail the taskomatic log during all of this to see if there are any issues.
  • Verify you are not having any repo sync/errata sync issues

I have see discrepancies somewhat like this in the past when there have been taskomatic issues and/or reposync issues. (IE packages downloaded, but security errata did not, causing strange display behavior)

Good Luck!

Your transaction was saved, rerun it with:

Any ideas on why this would be?
