libreadline6

What are the file names with the MD5sums? I'm having the exact same trouble.
Thanks so much for finding the answer!

Ah! I found it. (sound of head slapping!)Smilie

The problem wasn't gpg after all, but libreadline6. Updating it didn't help, but building it manually (md5:

and copying my version to /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so.6 worked! Image

libreadline6

could you post a completed code of handling this issue?
I also subject to the same problem...
And I have remove the libreadline.so and libreadline.so.6. Although it works, I don't know whether it will not bring up other problems in the long run. Before that, I tried to reinstall the libreadline6 manually, as a result, it failed. It seems your method is the best way to go. So I am really looking forward to your codes.

Anyone who can helps me is thanked!

libreadline6, yet again.

Ah! I found it.

What file has the good MD5? I need to know what package|source to rebuild from.

I fixed it in the absolute worst way. I changed the file
/usr/lib64/python2.6/dist-packages/UpdateManager/Core/DistUpgradeFetcherCore.py
Line 104: return False
to:
104 # REALLY BAD WAY to get around the libreadline6 problem.
105 #return False
106 return True
I'm ashamed to admit that I did this...I feel so, so, ..., used. Smilie
