The community PostgreSQL YUM repository does not just include PostgreSQL packages, but also some extensions which depend on a specific PostgreSQL version (e.g. PostGIS.), packages in the PostgreSQL world which can be used against some (or all) PostgreSQL versions (e.g. pgAdmin4), and the supportive packages for those extensions (e.g. Proj, GeOS).
Until yesterday, all of these packages were contained in the same directory for each OS / PostgreSQL combination. This increased both build time and the disk space required.
So, I decided to merge the “common” packages (packages like pgAdmin4 and GEOS as described above) into one single repository.
Yesterday I released new repo RPMs (42.0-9) which introduce 3 new common repositories:
Existing installations will continue running, and you will still receive “non-common” updates, in particular updates to the main PostgreSQL packages. However, new installations will fail when they need the common packages.
No. That will cause more issues.
Yes, as explained above.
I moved them to the common repository. Please update the repo file as described above.
