These same 8 updates have been sitting here for a year.
Because you now have to choose between (the old) kde-plasma-networkmanagement (which is the default in Fedora 19) and (the new) kde-plasma-nm, they use the same internal name now, so you cannot install both anymore. So uninstall one or the other.
When upgrading to Fedora 20 or later, kde-plasma-nm will always replace kde-plasma-networkmanagement.
I haven't "chosen" between anything. This is the case. At what point were you going to advise the users that they had a choice that they needed to make, and instruct them in how to make it?
i.e., what packages do I need to remove in order to allow these to install?
I am attempting to remove the "old" packages and I am so far unable to locate the proper sequence to execute this in. Could someone up there point me to some proper documentation on this issue?
kde-plasma-nm is not installed by default on Fedora 19, so you must have installed it explicitly.
If you run "yum update" directly, it will tell you what the problem is (that the latest builds of kde-plasma-nm conflict with kde-plasma-networkmanagement, because they are now designed to be a drop-in replacement, which unfortunately means they cannot be installed in parallel anymore). If Apper really doesn't show you any kind of message, that's a limitation of PackageKit/Apper. (It's a well-meaning feature, that it tries to update what it can without the packages that fail to update. If you try running the update again, with only the failing packages left to update, it should be giving you an error about why it's failing to update though. At least it has always done that for me.)
Okay, yes, I was receiving NO error messages whatsoever re the "new" apps. After reading the response I finally went in with yum and neutered kde-plasma-networkmanagement. Once I did, all 8 apps FINALLY installed and cleared from the update screen in Apper. That little portion of my life is cleaner now. Thank you.
I will vote that this item is closed (at least for me).
