It appears your repo is missing information about version "3.74.gpl".

I downloaded a copy of the following files:


Extracted and scanned through the XML files respectively, and there is not reference at all to "3.74.gpl", which makes me wonder if this is why yum does not acknowledge its existence, when doing "yum update wbm-virtual-server" or "yum info wbm-virtual-server" (which reports only 3.73.gpl)

I know there are others who have seen this issue, and am surprised that it hasn't been caught on your end, and/or fixed as of yet.

Anyways, I hope this information helps, and results in a fix of your repo or explanation as to why the repo doesn't include 3.74.gpl as of yet, even though I know you released it weeks ago.

We haven't released 3.74 to the YUM repository yet .. we prefer to wait a few days to see if any bugs are found before rolling it out to customers. It should be available soon though.

Sorry, I meant 3.75.

Yeah, I'm aware of your release policy.

My report was for "3.74.gpl" which as been released for a few weeks, but for some reason is not correctly referenced in the yum repo.

Oh, 3.74 .. that should be in there. Assigning this to Joe, who manages the GPL repository.

Looks like the changes I made to the repoo update management script to make it run faster broke the GPL repo part of things. I have no idea why. Must be something to do with links not being correctly handled by the createrepo tool when caching and timestamp checking is enabled.

I've run it manually, and will keep poking at it. 3.75 rolls out tonight, as well.

That explains why 3.74 wasn't showing up as an update (I made a post about a week ago, but had no response).

It became available just now and it updated fine.

How long will it be until 3.75 is available via yum?

Thanks Joe!

I had personally updated manually using the RPMs found at http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/universal" upon reading that it had been released, and realizing that the YUM repo wasn't working.

3.75 is rolling tonight. I'm in the midst of packaging it now.

Automatically closed -- issue fixed for 2 weeks with no activity.
