An updated yum-rhn-plugin package that fixes three bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The yum-rhn-plugin package allows the Yum package manager to access content from Red Hat Network (RHN).

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, applying automatic updates with the yum-rhn-plugin utility on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 system could fail with an "empty transaction" error message. This was because the cached version of yum-rhn-plugin metadata was not up-to-date. With this update, yum-rhn-plugin downloads new metadata if available, ensuring that all packages are available for download.
Red Hat Network (RHN) Proxy did not work properly if separated from a parent by a slow network. Consequently, users who attempted to download larger repodata files and RPM packages experienced timeouts. This update changes both RHN Proxy and Red Hat Enterprise Linux RHN Client to allow all communications to honor a configured timeout value for connections.
Scheduled package installation actions failed if the package was already installed. This caused dependent actions to fail to execute, such as configuration deployments, which in turn lead to the failure of automated installation using kickstart. This update ensures that a package installation action does not fail if the package is already installed.
Users of yum-rhn-plugin are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
