I have the same problem here as mentioned above as well as two other problems:

I did a fresh install of severn and ran up2date to install all the beta 
updates. I had made the mistake to enable GPG Sig checking for all files and 
since the beta pakages have no sig I had to click alot of times on "yes 
install anyway" (I know its my own fault :) after downloading 20% of the files 
up2date locked up! If you disable GPG Sig checking it downloads fine but if 
you enable it and you manualy give your okay to install it freezes as well.

The next problem is that up2date is selecting aspell even though the latest 
version seems to be installed already. If you don't remove this package 
up2date will complain about it and stop the entire update process. I would 
prefer it if up2date would only tell you about it and continue updateing.

I installed the Fedora beta2 yesterday and noticed it still ships with up2date-
3.9.29-2. When I run up2date from a shell I get loads of lines with "libglade-
WARNING ** Error loading image..." and up2date (subscribed to severn-beta2 
channel) again shows me that aspell 0.50.3-15 and xemacs-el 21.4.14-1 even 
though they are already installed!
Thanks for fixing this.
Comment 4 Adrian Likins 2004-08-24 15:40:55 EDT
should be resolved in current versions (4.2.x in rhel3, and
4.3.x in fc2)
