I get an error when I run ./ on rhel 6.5. The log claims that all packages have been already installed and then fails with error like this -

2014-09-11 22:19:55.839 | Package python-webob-1.2.3-8.el6.noarch already instal led and latest version
2014-09-11 22:19:55.839 | Package pyxattr-0.5.0-1.el6.x86_64 already installed a nd latest version

The worlddump*.txt file has no information other than current processes and df output. When I print the list of packages it is trying to install, I see that all packages exist. My local.config file is the sample file that I copied from the documentation. Any idea as to where to look for error?

It was the same as I had experienced. I think it is related to repositories, as what I did disable some repositories (particularly the epel) and got the problem. If you take a look on the log, there will be something "No package xxx", that's why you also got that 'Missing packages detected'.

My remedies:

Clean the cache --> yum clean all
Re-enable it back in the file epel.repo (enabled=0 to enabled=1)-->  /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo
Rerun --> yum -y upgrade

If still got it try to remove the cloned directory
$sudo rm -rf /opt/stack

Then besure to add/edit on your local.conf or localrc, so it will redownload

Hope this will help.

It happened with me too, so I followed these steps: 1. Find out package/s name in starting with "No package XXX" 2. Install specific packages with dependencies manually 3. Re-run
