Description Daniel Benamy 2008-05-06 00:04:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Everything goes smoothly until the "Download boot images" stage. When the
progress bar gets about 95% across the screen and says "Downloading installer
stage 2..." it stops. The console says:
No package matched to remove
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 198, in on_assistant_apply
  File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 206, in _do_main
  File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 376, in main_preupgrade
    (mdev,mpath) = preupgrade.bootpath_to_anacondapath(stage2_abs)
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable

The "No package..." line shows up much earlier.

preupgrade-cli has the same problem:

Download packages?

They use the same backend, so I'd expect them both to have the same problem.

You should try preupgrade-0.9.3, which has some fixes for this problem.  You can get it (for F8) here:
Please retest with that package and let us know if it works.

That worked. Thanks!
