hi,
anyone can explain me why if I did a:

Code: Select all

[root@tvcnt6mailrelay ~]# yum updateinfo list cves
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirrors.prometeus.net
 * extras: mirrors.prometeus.net
 * updates: mirrors.prometeus.net
updateinfo list done
[root@tvcnt6mailrelay ~]#


I got nothing...

if I did:

Code: Select all

[root@tvcnt6mailrelay ~]# yum --security check-update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
base                                                                                                                                            | 3.7 kB     00:00
base/primary_db                                                                                                                                 | 3.6 MB     00:10

Limiting package lists to security relevant ones
No packages needed for security; 313 packages available
[root@tvcnt6mailrelay ~]#


I got nothing...

but when I did:

Code: Select all

[root@tvcnt6mailrelay ~]# yum update glibc

 * base: mirror.crazynetwork.it
 * extras: mirror.crazynetwork.it
