hrmm.. my desktop installed great... my server on the other hand.. which is the exact same setup (okay.. a few custom compiled stuff.. but nothing outside of /usr/local not in rpm format) -- and only a few other rpms installed-- the upgrade script python or something another barfs out with a huge meaningless error message and reboots the machine... hrmm.. I ended up installing each package with -F and satisfying the deps with --test and such the last line was :rpm error It all worked fine by hand.. databse was fine... this one has me baffled. Luckily i have been with redhat since mothers day was just being replaced.. so.. I hacked my way into 6.1 with only minor headaches...

bug not for kdeadmin.

Sounds like the installer found a package on your system which was marked for upgrade but for which there was not a corresponding package. Problems resulting from this are fixed in the latest installer (it plays better with missing packages) available in beta.
