Mirrored SLES 11 SP1 Updates Linux Bundle exported as YUM repository

zypper lu or zypper up does not show any update available


This is fixed in version 11.1 - see KB 7008746 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at


Add the following line in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf:
solver.allowVendorChange = true

Additional Information

The YUM repository meta-data information (primary.xml.gz)contains empty vendor information instead of the vendor information contained in the different rpm packages.  Zypper requires the YUM repository meta-data information to contain vendor information of the rpm packages to match it against the already installed version of the packages.
