Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1290108
Yum Extender (DNF) shows update for uninstalled Perl package.
Last modified: 2016-12-20 11:50:28 EST
DNF update shows 'perl-Unicode-Normalize-1.24-1.fc23.x86_64' as a suggested update but the update fails if selected. Error in journal is "org.baseurl.DnfSystem: Package perl-Unicode-Normalize not installed, cannot update it."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.1.4
How reproducible: Unsure.
Steps to Reproduce:
Please, could you provide additional information. What exactly you executed and what was output. Please could you check if package is installed by: rpm -q perl-Unicode-Normalize
Thanks a lot
Hi Jaroslav, this package came up in the suggested upgrades in yumex-dnf.
An architecture mismatch?
*** Bug 1288771 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
As there are two reports for yumex-dnf and not for dnf I am changing the component. Does `dnf update` from command line works for you?
Yes, dnf update worked and the 1.24.1 package was installed successfully.
I have seen it before, that yumex-dnf show some perl updates that could not be applied.
What version of yumex-dnf & dnfdaemon are you using ?

I did a new install of F23Mate and gathered some information as dnf version
and content of dnf.log (the same before trying to update packages via dnf and
after the bug.
See the screen shots (dnf-bug 1288771-info .tar.gz)
I do not know what to do with installing groups. This is new for me.
So I tried to update packages as you see in the attachments in
dnf-bug 1288771-info .tar.gz
I saw my bug has been CLOSED but I like to answer Jaroslav Mracek because he
=====The above is actually not a problem for me because I can do the first
update via old yumex
If you propose using a new dnf version of some solution for Perl I can understand
that helps but I like an automatic update before I start updating with dnf.
Some anonymous users complained about "Error(s) in building transaction update" in the perl-Unicode-Normalize-1.24-1.fc23 update <https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-adcf83cb70>.
I cannot see what could be wrong with the RPM package. The only unusual feature is it conflicts with some older perl package.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
