on issue on bug tracker Trevor reply this :

Code: Select all

CentOS has never included security errata in its yum repos. CentOS 7 didn't have it nor 5 or 6. If you need security related metadata in your yum repos then you need to run RHEL. 
But is not really true the security list is not integrated on CentOS 8 but CentOS 7 have security list.
Have sen mores exemples for proof have a big change on CentOS 8 no have security informations same as CentOS 7.
Simple test for everyone install cockpit :

Code: Select all

yum install -y cockpit cockpit-packagekit sos
systemctl enable --now cockpit.socket
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=cockpit
firewall-cmd --reload
or

Code: Select all

yum install -y PackageKit
systemctl start packagekit.socket
pkcon get-update-detail systemd
or

Code: Select all

But is not really true the security list is not integrated on CentOS 8 but CentOS 7 have security list.
Try reading what I wrote again. We do not supply security metadata for ANY CentOS version. Not CentOS 8 or 7 or 6 or 5...

Ok but where is the bug if you have no security list .
Just explain me for what centos 7 have possibility to see informations.
And centos 8 no have this possibility.

You are mistaken. Neither version has any security metadata. None. It does not work.

This is very strange PackageKit have possibility to see informations.
And that work On Debian / Ubuntu / Red Hat / Fedora / Arch Linux / CentOS 7.
But On centos 8 no.
Possibly is a regression of package kit ?

Unfortunately I do not understand what you are talking about and it would appear that you don't understand what I'm saying either.

Actually, you do get this information, but only on packages installed from EPEL, not from CentOS proper:

Hence why I said "We do not supply security metadata for ANY CentOS version". EPEL is not a CentOS repo, it's a repo that happens to work on CentOS but it's not one that CentOS provides or supports.

Hi TrevorH,

Is there no way to check CVE and security update for CentOS now?

It's just question.
