On cluster server installing patches, everything seemed fine, but then got this error message. "running ERROR: Unable to connect to the daemon".
rug pl, looks like all of the patches installed.
This server is only subscribed to the OES channel, not the edir88 channel.
When I do rug su, it shows no patches to be available.

Any suggestions on what happened?

/var/log/rcd shows the following:
