While trying to install tumbleweed, midway through RPM shows this error:
Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: Unable to create control pipe.
This is actually a part of a larger error message, which complains that the installation of a package had failed. Depending upon the time at which the RPM error shows up, it can be for any package (libwpe-1_0-1 in this case). Trying to ignore the error doesn’t work because all subsequent package installations also fail with the previous RPM error.
I am using the latest snapshot of the NET installer and have verified the image with the given check sums and it’s signature. To make sure that my USB drive wasn’t failing, I also tried a different one with the same results. My previous install had gone through without any issues, searching about this error online didn’t give me any appropriate answers either.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
