Description of problem:
Running yum update on newly installed Fedora 19 x86_64 fails
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Type in "yum update"
2.Observe error messages (enclosed)
See attached console log for "yum update" and "yum check"
There are several problems I can see, none of which point to a bug in yum. First of all you have some multilib problems (caused either by faulty installation or by packages themselves) - just uninstall one architecture of the libusb and libusb-devel and you should be fine.
The other problem probably lies in the package kde-settings itself. Reassigning the bug for further evaluation.
Thank you for your information.
I'll check this out in the morning. One of the rpm's (I think it was one of the settings rpms) I tried to remove got a "scriptlet" error of some kind.
I don't see how one can get a faulty installation. Do you mean installation via DVD or a "yum install" problem? This system is x86_64 but does have some ix86 pkgs for the software that doesn't know about x86_64 yet.

Yeah, that's the reason why I reassigned this bug to kde-settings component, the uninstallation failed in that package.

That's probably the root cause of the multilib problem that yum reports. I am no expert in multilib but I don't think there is anything yum can do about it, the solution is IMO to uninstall one arch of the libusb library - either the i686 or x86_64.
See bug #989145 for the kde-settings scriptlet issue.
The other problem(s) can likely be resolved with 'yum distro-sync'
