Updating nut with yum
« on: April 29, 2024, 04:07:46 PM »
Today I got a message to update over yum - so I did.

But I get this errors:
Code: [Select]

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
yum update nut-client.x86_64 nut.x86_64 failed: 256

What should I do?
Thanks in advice.

nut-cgi is not part of our core distro but is in EPEL. you might have installed (like me ) it according to the wiki.


you can either wait for repo to sync (I have added it to our repo) or to enable epel for this update

yum update nut-cgi --enablerepo=epel

Martin,

I hope you did not run the upgrade yet.

nut-2.8.0 intrroduce a lot of breaking changes.
 service will fail to run with our current configuration
 it will be a no fix as SME10 is almost eol, and the current 2.8.0 in EPEL 7 seems buggy and half baked looking at the openned bugs (it is worst currently for el8 and el9 with newer releases)

i have removed the upgrades from SME mirrors

if you did do the upgrade
Code: [Select]
yum  downgrade nut nut-client nut-cgi
systemctl restart nut
should do the trick

if not you might need to uninstall first nut-cgi, and then install it from epel archive
https://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/epel/7/x86_64/Packages/n/nut-cgi-2.7.2-4.el7.x86_64.rpm

Code: [Select]
rpm -e nut-cgi
yum downgrade nut nut-client
systemctl restart nut
wget https://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/epel/7/x86_64/Packages/n/nut-cgi-2.7.2-4.el7.x86_64.rpm
yum install nut-cgi-2.7.2-4.el7.x86_64.rpm
