(ex-PT/Technique) Package management for RHEL / CentOS / SuSE / RPM systems: Rug prevent from having a good reporting when trying to install or remove a package
- if I try to install a package which is installed, Rug will return 1 with this message: "ERROR: 'mypackage' is not available"
- if I try to remove a package which is not install, Rug will return 1 with this mesage: "ERROR: Can not find resolvable 'mypackage'"
It will lead to have Error reports even though it is not really an error.

This should not happen, because CFEngine obtains a list of packages from the local package manager, and only calls a install/remove action if it is necesary.
Therefore, it sounds more like that (reading the list of installed packages) is broken here.
