Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start pup in a term or command window by typing 'pup'
2.the getting update information window appears with a status bar that is increasing.
3After that finishes you press on the apply updates button and the resolving dependecies for uptates status bar starts to increase (note I am trying to do all updates) have not tried a partial update yet.
Actual Results: The update appears to start updating, but then eventually there is no change in the pup window and eventually it crashes and disapears
Expected Results: The update process should have completed. I have never seen it complete.
Here is what is seen in the term window then PUP crashes whilst doing an update:
Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'set_from_stock'

am using the latest kernel (uname -r -> 2.6.15-1.1858_FC5) on a AMD64 3000 and running FC5 in VMWare Player.
Can you run rpm -V pirut?
rpm -V pirut shows that pirut is not installed. Further when I tried to
install it from yumex missing packages: system-config-packages is
package firstboot. Is pirut then needed for pup to run correctly?
You're running an older version of pup (which is now a part of pirut). This
should be good in current versions.
Moving component to pirut. Sorry for the spam.
