#18884 closed defect (not_a_bug)

sysupgrade ignores return codes of called binaries

Reported by: yanosz Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: base system Version: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Keywords: Cc:


We noticed that sysupgrades ignores errors such as:

  • tar is not supporting gzip
  • find is missing

In these situations, no error is reported - sysupgrade goes on as usual, preventing configuration from been taken over.
IMO sysupgrade should honor return codes of called binaries (find, tar, etc.). If an error occurs, the user should be asked to perform a backup on its own.
