Screenshot of anaconda with the backtrace related to the crash
Description of problem:
After booting from current network install image boot.iso, anaconda crashes and issues a backtrace ending with:
"AttributeError: 'gi.repository.BlockDev' object has no attribute 'plugin_specs-from_names'" .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from current boot.iso in gnome-boxes.
Anaconda crashes after start-up.
Anaconda starts up correctly and launches the graphical installer.
Please attach the logs from /tmp as individual, text/plain attachments.
What I suspect happened is that the boot.iso was built with libblockdev-1.3, which moves the python gi overrides into a separate package, but that it does not have the new python-blivet that pulls in the separate package as a dependency.
It looks like the new libblockdev landed yesterday:
but there's been no new python-blivet, the last Rawhide build of python-blivet was python-blivet-1.15-2.fc24 on 2015-10-06.
This broke all Rawhide tests (and Cloud images, as they're built through anaconda) for today's nightly. It crashes early enough that the crash handler doesn't kick in so I don't have any useful logs from openQA, but if we want to be double-plus-sure I could grab an image and reproduce manually, it seems very likely it just needs a new python-blivet, though.

There are no anaconda log files in /tmp yet when the crash occurs. There is only /tmp/syslog which, however, does not reveal any related entry.
