We have a newly installed OES2 SP3/SLES10 SP4 server that is struggling with a few patches...

Getting "transaction failed", "invalid package" and "Error: RPM failed: error: unpacking of archive failed" messages (Log entries at bottom)

Have tried clearing the /var/cache/zmd and restarting several times

Have also removed subscription and re-registered, keep getting same issues.

Is anyone else experiencing issues? Could this be something corrupt in the source files?

Cheers

David
