Description matti aarnio 2013-09-28 09:57:02 EDT
Description of problem:

  libicu-devel is published at updates without corresponding libicu.

  It does look like there is persistent problem in update publishing
  of this particular package set.

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

  F16-F19  (at least since F16, maybe longer)

How reproducible:

  Every time icu has been updated over multiple Fedora releases,
  and installation has libicu-devel package installed.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. yum install libicu-devel
  2. yum upgrade

Actual results:

At a system without libicu-devel installed: Nothing is wrong during "yum upgrade" run.  The system just does not update libicu package.

At a system with libicu-devel installed, and after libicu-devel is updated for that release, "yum upgrade" terminates with:

Error: Package: libicu-devel-50.1.2-7.fc19.x86_64 (updates)
           Requires: libicu = 50.1.2-7.fc19
           Installed: libicu-50.1.2-5.fc19.x86_64 (installed)
               libicu = 50.1.2-5.fc19

It has become routine to run updates with "--skip-broken" option, but fixing the original problem would be better.

It has never happened to me. Do you have any third party repo (e.g., rpmfusion) that might require the older ICU? Do you have libicu.i686 installed?
