On Red Hat Satellite 6 client installing a package returns 404 error despite the package being in metadata

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Installing or upgrading a package to a client machine fails with HTTPS Error 404 - Not Found
  • Inspecting relevant repository on Satellite 6 server's /var/lib/pulp/published:

    • Metadata contains expected information about the package that is really intended to be present in the repo
    • The symlink to /var/lib/pulp/content is broken, even for a repository with Immediate download policy
    • The /var/lib/pulp/content contains the package of given filename.
  • Is there automated way of fixing symlinks so in case there are more such instances?


  • Red Hat Satellite 6.4 and above.
