Pulp 2.8.6 is now Generally Available in the stable repositories with bug fixes:


This release includes a small number of fixes to severe bugs in Pulp Platform,

the RPM plugin, and the Docker plugin.

Of particular interest to RPM users are issues #1949 and #2048, two issues

that were severely impacting errata-related syncing and publishing. See the

list of issues below for more details.


The Pulp 2 and Pulp stable repositories are included in the pulp repo files:

https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/pulp/pulp/fedora-pulp.repo for fedora 22 & 23

https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/pulp/pulp/rhel-pulp.repo for RHEL 6 & 7

After enabling the desired repository (pulp-stable or pulp-2-stable), you’ll want

to follow the standard upgrade path, with migrations:

$ sudo systemctl stop httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat
 $ sudo yum upgrade
 $ sudo -u apache pulp-manage-db
 $ sudo systemctl start httpd pulp_workers pulp_resource_manager pulp_celerybeat
