Description of problem:
Pup removes packages set to be updated and won't install them. That happened on January 4th when updating rawhide. The issue is a critical because that behavior may totally make Fedora completely unbootable if doing critical updates.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run pup
2. update packages
Actual Results: Package to be updated are removed.
Expected Results: Packages should be updated.
Based on the conversation we had on IRC, I think this was due to bum SELinux
Moving component to pirut. Sorry for the spam.
