The issue is legit and known.

I'm not sure why you're downloading packages from koji to install on a stable release, but it would be better if you got them from the repositories and used bodhi to give feedback.  This is only in updates-testing at the moment, and providing karma there would help the updates process.

I usually use updates from updates-testing. I tried koji when the update from the testing repository failed.
