Errata appear to be applicable for the system in RHSM, but yum update has nothing to install.

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • After running yum update, Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) in the Customer Portal continues to display applicable errata for the system. After running yum update again, Red Hat Subscription Manager tells that there is nothing to install. Why it is still getting notifications for errata if there is nothing to install?
  • Mismatched Errata Count between the Customer Portal and system CLI.
  • Old packages showing up in errata. This is an issue in older versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux including RHEL 5 and RHEL 6.4 or earlier.

Environment

  • Red Hat Subscription Management
