The issue you having is a bug in spacewalk and I don’t think it was reported yet.It took me a week to figure it out that spacewalk is not populating full package metadata.File “/usr/lib/python2.7/xmlrpclib.py”, line 658, in dump_nil raise Type Error, “cannot marshal None unless allow_none is enabled” : cannot marshal None unless allow_none is enabled Any suggestion?The Client ist registering correctly on the spacewalk server, but after apt-get update the package list is not transferred to server. Personally I dont use Spacewalk for monitoring so I didnt care.Please help me to find any stable patch management tool for my 14.04 desktops or any fix for Python error during upgrade with spacewalk.
@Ranith-Were you able to get any clarity on this issue. Could you please let me know if you got any possible solution or which one to prefer for Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop clients management(Provisioning, Patching mainly).
Documentation on this is still sparse and you have to figure out certain things on your own. Its better to build them for 12.04 rather than adding apt source from a higher release because you will end up with alot dependency and version problems of other packages.
Read on after the jump how to completly setup and configure Spacewalk 2.2 to work with Ubuntu clients. This article only shows the Debian/Ubuntu specific things you need to know, a general Spacewalk installation needs to be done beforehand, see https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/wiki/How To Install Create channels with ‘Architecture’ set to ‘amd64-debian’ and ‘Yum Repository Checksum Type’ to SHA256. You can easily build them by yourself on a 12.04 machine: So far everything could be googled together from different sources. In the next upcoming article I will however show you how to get Errata automatically imported into Spacewalk from the Ubuntu security mailing list and https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-security-announce/ Thanks for this! After syncing repos to my spacewalk server and registering my Ubuntu machine, it seems like apt is pulling down empty repos.
Thanks in advance, Vinay Hello I know this issue is old but it is currently hitting me on ubuntu 14.04 🙂 Did you report this to upstream?
Could you elaborate it a bit – does the original Packages in ubuntu upstream have this parameter?
Done The following extra packages will be installed: … After this operation, 175 MB of additional disk space will be used. [Y/n] n If you clean the status file, you will break dpkg, your system will not know what packages are installed.
