[SOLVED] Updating CentOS 4.8 -> 4.9

Post by majun » 2011/07/23 08:59:09

I remember reading something about this issue but can't remember what and where.
Long story short: I'm running CentOS 4.8 on a server and would like to update to 4.9. However, there don't seem to be any updates:

[code][root@gaylord ~]# uname -a
Linux gaylord 2.6.9-89.33.1.EL #1 Thu Dec 2 10:07:20 EST 2010 i586 i586 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@gaylord ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 4.8 (Final)
[root@gaylord ~]# yum update

My CentOS-Base.repo:

Your kernel 2.6.9-89.33.1.EL was released in Dec 2010. This means to me that your system has not been updated for quite a while.

Try running the yum command with a -d6 flag to see if you can catch the trouble point.

Sounds about right, December 2010 was when I updated to 4.8. I've ran 'yum update' a few times since but it can only remember one occasion when it actually installed updates.

The -d6 flag doesn't seem to reveal anything extraordinary. Yum seems to be reading the 4.9 repos but fails to find any updates.

[code][root@gaylord ~]# yum -d6 update
Yum Version: 2.4.3
COMMAND: yum -d6

Finally spotted it - you have changed the repo definition. It is never checking updates. Should be:
[code]
[update[b]s[/b]]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Updates
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=[b]updates[/b]
#baseurl=http://centos.bio.lmu.de/$releasever/[b]updates[/b]/$basearch/

THANK YOU!

I can't believe I hadn't noticed that yet.... :cry:

I don't recall modifying that file but I can hardly believe it happened all by itself so it must have been me at some point for some reason...

Re: [SOLVED] Updating CentOS 4.8 -> 4.9

Post by pschaff » 2011/07/24 12:26:32

That seems to be the only reasonable explanation if nobody else messes with your system. :-) It is certainly not the original.

Thanks for reporting back. Marking this thread [SOLVED] for posterity.
