Agent 2.6 is broken after update from Epel repo

CentOS 7.7.1908

After update from ocsinventory-agent-2.6.0-2.1 to version ocsinventory-agent-2.6.0-3 from Epel repo the agent stopped working.

[root@host ~]# ocsinventory-agent
Failed to load Ocsinventory::Agent, Global symbol "$self" requires explicit package name at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/Ocsinventory/Agent.pm line 166.
Compilation failed in require at (eval 1) line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 1) line 1.

you can run the agent directly for its source directory with --devlib

I only do it for rhel/centos 6 and 7. I have prepare some change also for fedora and rhel/centos 8 but not tested (so I don't publish it now).

Thank you @kapouik for your time. I appreciate that. However, I can't see any new packages from Epel repo, but "OCS Inventory NG repository for Enterprise Linux 7", which I've had disabled works now.

hello, after enabling the repo OCS Inventory NG repository for Enterprise Linux 7 - x86_64, and installed the ocsinventory-agent-2.6.0-5.el7.ocs.x86_64 and
ocsinventory-agent-core-2.6.0-5.el7.ocs.x86_64 we get when we run
/usr/sbin/ocsinventory-agent --force
Can't open display

this is effectively blocking new installations at least on rhel 7.

what do you advise?

Try whitout --force. This parameters is only for test. If you get the sames message, I will look on it.

when checking the docs

--force would always send and inventory even if the schedule is different

anyway, we tried and the log say: [error] Cannot establish communication : 400 Bad Request

By default, OCS agent don't send a full inventory each time you launch it. It only do a contact, check if there is something new from the server and give an inventory if something change on your computer. If nothing change, it will send a full inventory once a week (If I remember correctly, this is the default parameters).

If you send a full inventory, the database of the server will grow up very quickly (good for having bad performance) and the network traffic will be more important.

--force is not a standard parameters, this is for test, for debug or other state not in production.

For your problem, please send a full log in debug mode of your agent : it look like you have a certificat problem
