ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:
rubygem-locale = 2.0.5-2.fc15.1 is needed by (installed) ruby-locale-2.0.5-2.fc15.1.noarch
Please report this error in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=rawhide&component=yum
rubygem-locale should be upgraded
not sure what the issue is, but why is fc15 being cited in the version strings when the OS is 18 and the existing installed package is rubygem-locale-2.0.8-1.fc18.noarch
This is not a bug in yum. The fc15 referenced in your packages means you have not updated those packages since F15. But the root cause is that the package ruby-locale blocks your update, yum just reports the update is being blocked. Uninstall the ruby-locale and everything will work.
this cannot be an issue with fedora 15 remnants or lack of updates since then. this box was build from scratch with Fedora 17 and fedup'd to 18. there has never been a Fedora 15 instance on this device.
i'll shut my mouth... i was checking on the wrong device. F15 was installed on the device with this issue.
