Yum update gone wrong - some services failed
Katello 3.3.2 / Foreman 1.14.2
Yesterday I performed a yum update on our katello box that completed OK. Today after even after a reboot I can't access the webpage.
Doing a 'katello-service status' I see some services are not started e.g. smart_proxy_dynflow_core and httpd. Output of command is attached.
Any chance of finding out why this happened and/or how to start the unstarted services?

If you haven't already, can you run foreman-installer --upgrade?
I ran this a couple days ago and got an error than I can't remember today.
After a reboot yesterday I got the smart_proxy_dynflow_core service started but still not the httpd service.
Yesterday I found the solution for the unstartable httpd service on a Bugzilla page for Satellite 6.2 - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1336365#c10
Editing the /etc/httpd/conf/ports.conf by commenting out the "Listen 443" I was able to start the apache service.
After that I was able to complete the upgrade to Katello 3.4.5 / Foreman 1.15.3 and all services started correctly.
Don't know if above workaround should have been fixed, but apperently this is related to the Foreman bug: http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/16972
