Description of problem:
I've been trying to update an F21-server VM to Rawhide, but it kept stalling at the installation of cockpit-ws (not an 'upgrade', since that subpackage doesn't exist for f21...I guess it gets pulled in by something else). I had a VM snapshot, so I was able to prove it reproducible. I was also able to do a complete successful upgrade to Rawhide by first removing cockpit altogether from F21, then doing the "yum distro-sync".
Seems to be 100% of the time currently.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From a cleanly installed, then updated F21 server, attempt to jump to Rawhide, following the steps on the wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum#To_rawhide
Rawhide packages get downloaded, and start to update. When the cockpit-ws package is being applied, it appears to hang.
It doesn't hang.
I've just successfully run "yum install cockpit" on the newly updated Rawhide, so the problem seems to be limited to upgrade from "latest F21" -> "latest Rawhide" (or maybe broader, I haven't tried F22 -> Rawhide).
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

This works for me, detailed output in https://github.com/cockpit-project/cockpit/issues/1943.
This may have been a temporary Rawhide issue. Is it still broken for you?
I don't currently have time to test this. I just saw it once when I was upgrading a VM and figured I'd report it. To work around it, I just removed cockpit before upgrade, then installed again after. If you've proven it to work now, that's plenty good enough for me! :)
