Description Mikko Tiihonen 2004-09-21 07:47:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040803 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 ? main(sys.argv[1:]) File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 122, in main base.doTransaction() 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): yum-2.1.3-1 How reproducible: Always 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.

Created attachment 104057 [details] script run of the yum upgrade with debug level 4

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.

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 smoothly.
