zypper module arch and version specification for zypper commands is not correct

Description

The command used by zypper module:

rpm -qa --qf "Name=%{name}\nVersion=%{version}-%{release}\nArchitecture=%{arch}\n" 

does not display epoch, which leads to a list of installed packaged without epoch.

So when specifying a version with epoch, install works but always returns an error.
If not specifying it, reporting works well but install will be able to install an exact version.

This needs to be fixed in zypper (and maybe rpm) repos at least.

The same bug exists in yum module, but it has less consequences as yum allows installing a given version without epoch.

yum requires epoch at the beginning like:

1398866025:rudder-agent-4.1.10.release-1.EL.6.x86_64

So it is hard to fix as we don't want people to be forced to use an epoch, but allow to specify it.

  • Subject changed from Epoch in software versions is not stored by zypper (and yum?) module, which breaks version detection to Epoch in software versions is not stored by zypper module, which breaks version detection

zypper on SLES10 appears to completely ignore epoch...

We will have to handle it differently depending on the zypper version...

Actually this is trickier:

zypper can identify a package with a specific version and without the epoch when the package comes from a repository, which is the most common case

# zypper install rudder-agent=4.0.7.release-1.SLES.12
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'rudder-agent=4.0.7.release-1.SLES.12' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
'rudder-agent = 4.0.7.release-1.SLES.12' is already installed.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.

So if we add epoch to version number, we would break some usecases.

We have no simple way to handle epoch is version numbers, but it should not be necessary as Rudder makes no version comparisons and delegates it to zypper (which know epoch).
