SUSE Manager client - Installed Packages listed twice, once as source "System Packages"

This document (7024285) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Manager 3.1
SUSE Manager 3.2
SUSE Manager 4.0


On a SUSE Manager client several packages are shown as "System Packages", which means
it does not belong to any repository. This is correct for e.g. "sles-release-DVD" but "sles-release"
should come from Pool or Update channel.

S | Name | Type | Version | Arch | Repository ---+-------------------+---------+------------+--------+--------------- ------------------------- i+ | sles-release | package | 12.3-4.3.1 | x86_64 | (System Packages) v | sles-release | package | 12.3-4.3.1 | x86_64 | SLES12-SP3-Updates


work in progress, see bug


The buildtime registered in the rpm database and shipped in the repos metadata differ in 1 or 2 hours, depending on whether the package was built in CEST or CET.
