are you sure the catalog updated correctly ? is there a 1.13.3-22 version of libipa_hbac-python available ? why isn't it in the catalog ?
Hi Bill - yes that's what we are seeing, the catalog does not include that version (its an offline catalog). We are getting the rpm from online source and will re-gen the catalog.
If you re-run the offline downloader, does it get the newer version of the rpm ?
What version of the downloader are you using ?
I've got the same error on our environment (8.7.00 Patch 2). We've got an online RHEL Patch Catalog that was last updated (successfully) on 19 Aug 2016. Were you able to fix this?
you've got the same error w/ the two noted python rpms ?
We had a PA issue with our linux servers for a LONG time and ended up making a blacklist to work around it. Then we got some time to circle back to see if we could figure it out. We were getting this error:
STDERR: ERROR::YUM dry run failed. For more details, please execute job in debug mode and check yum.err.logERROR::gdk-pixbuf2 conflicts with gtk2ERROR::gdk-pixbuf2-devel conflicts with gtk2-devel
After talking to Newton about it, we figured that it was not a BladeLogic issue but something with the RPMs.
After a TON of digging, what we found is that a change was made to pixbuf that made gtk2 conflict at versions less than gtk2 2.21.
Yum didn’t understand the issue. We manually upgraded to gtk2-devel-2.24.23-8.el6.x86_64.rpm and now PA is fine across the board.
So it could be something similar.

Response from Red Hat Support:
Either one of the package is required. So please remove the package "libipa_hbac-python-1.12.4-47.el6_7.8.x86_64" and install "python-libipa_hbac-1.13.3-22.el6_8.4.x86_64".
