Description of problem:
I have a machine with FC2 + latest updates and I tried to upgrade to
FC3test2 using yum.

To begin with I manually installed the yum-2.1.3-1 and
fedora-release-2.91-4 rpms and configured a fast mirror for fc3t2.
Running "yum --obsoletes update" fails after a long time with the
following error:
Transaction Test Succeeded
Running Transaction
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 139, in ?
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 122, in main
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 499, in doTransaction
    errstring += error
TypeError: cannot concatenate 'str' and 'tuple' objects

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have fc2 installation with latest patches
2. manually update yum, fedora-release & yum.conf
3. run yum --obsoletes update

Actual Results:  Running the actual update transaction fails

Expected Results:  The update should finish completely

Additional info:

I did have other repositories configured for fc2 and rpm's downloaded
from them but as they do not have fc3 packets yet the yum.conf during
the upgrade has only the [base] repository.

I'll attach the full yum -d 4 log to the bug later.

This is known and I think it's fixed in cvs.
There will be a new package hitting rawhide in a few days. If you
could test that it would be useful.

Comment 3 Mikko Tiihonen 2004-09-30 14:25:00 UTC
I can confirm that the yum-2.1.4-1 release fixed the bug.
I had not touched the system after the bug appeared and upgrading the
new yum cured the problem and the upgrade from fc2 to fc3test2 went
