[SOLVED] Package installer incorrectly reporting failure



  • Running 2.3-ALPHA 20151021, after every package install I've tried thus far, the GUI reports failure, while the package log shows success.

    (Loving the new GUI BTW)

  • My test system is running 2.3-ALPHA (amd64) built on Sat Oct 24 00:24:51 CDT 2015

    I just installed the same arping package and got success everywhere.

    Renato was doing a bunch of work on that in the last week - I guess the 20151021 snapshot had code in a not-so-good state. I would try a newer snapshot.

    By the way, there was some code just committed that makes the package installer work correctly for the reinstall-all case as well. So it would be good to use a snapshot that was built within the last few hours or later.

    Will do Phil. Thnx for the reply.



  • I'm seeing same behaviour in this morning's build.


  • Developer Netgate

    I have not been able to reproduce this either.

    Would you mind running another installation please and then posting the last few lines from the files:

    • /tmp/webgui-log.txt

    • /tmp/webgui-log.json

    That should provide some clues.

    Thanks!

  • bump

    Thanks for that. The problem is that for some reason your system is reporting that 9 steps of 0 required have been completed:

    { "type": "INFO_PROGRESS_TICK", "data": { "current": 9, "total" : 0}}

    and the code is looking for $current == $total to call it a success.

    We will investigate.


  • Developer Netgate

    Would you please run:  "pkg clean -ay" from the command line to clear the package cache?



  • @Steve_B:

    Done.


  • Developer Netgate

    Did it help?

    We think this may be a bug in the pkg system. I have just made a change to pkg_mgr_install.php to accommodate it.

    Would you please test before and after syncing?



  • Oops. Should have said - no, same behaviour after cleaning the cache. Will grab the updated php file and try again.



  • Assuming you mean commit 3985bb3 in github, that does make it report success. Thnx.

    [Solved]


  • Developer Netgate

    Cool. Thank you for testing.

    We have passed the "pkg" bug report upstream.
