Description of problem (from koji build root.log):
DEBUG util.py:282: Error unpacking rpm package uucp-1.07-38.fc19.x86_64
DEBUG util.py:282: error: unpacking of archive failed on file /var/lock/uucp: cpio: mkdir
DEBUG util.py:282: error: uucp-1.07-38.fc19.x86_64: install failed
Use koji to build a package with a uucp dependency.
The resolution to Bug 998737 introduces a dependency of uucp in hylafax+. However, koji builds for f19 and f20 fail (whereas f21, el5, and el6 apparently succeed) due to some kind of problem with unpacking/creating /var/lock/uucp when package uucp is installed onto the vm.
This is blocking hylafax+ updates on f19 and f20 and the resolution of Bug 998737.
uucp-1.07-42.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
uucp-1.07-42.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 19 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing uucp-1.07-42.fc19'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
Thank you. I don't know how apply the uucp update to koji builds other than simply waiting for it to mature and release. (?)

Lee, I submitted buildroot override  right now:
Your buildroot override has been successfully tagged. It may take up to 20
minutes for the buildroot to regenerate.
Hmm, I'm still at a loss why the error in comment #0 happens in F19, F20 but not F21:
The filesystem package tries to create the /var/lock symlink in %pretrans, but this should fail on all three because the /var directory doesn't exist at that point (unless koji/mock creates it in Rawhide but not the old releases).
Seems like on Rawhide is installed "lockdev" before uucp?
Maybe - I should probably add posix.mkdir(/var) into filesystem to prevent it anyway...
