Additional Information

Steps to Replicate:

1. Create a simple RPM Bundle & assign it to an agent.
2. Do "rug ref" on agent side & check with commands "rug bl","rug bl -i", "rpm -q<package name>", to confirm that the Bundle got installed.
3. Then remove the Bundle association for Agent from ZCC
4. Do rug refresh on Agent.

Result:

"rug bl" - will not list the Bundle & indicates that the Bundle was removed.
But "rug bl -i" , still shows the Bundle, also "rpm -q <package name>" shows the presence of related packages.

ZMD log shows
Failed to execute scheduled action (remove (bundles=c870925011649137fac2d8af2e5373e1, dryrun=false)): Bundle transaction failed: Bundle transaction failed: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
