yum update fails: missing dependency for yum-utils
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:57:22 EST
Description of problem:
Attempt to update fc6 system using yum stalls at dependency check
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-utils.noarch 0:1.1.1-1.fc7 occuring in fc6 update stream
Steps to Reproduce:
1. su - root
2. yum update
---> Package bzip2-devel.i386 0:1.0.3-6.fc6 set to be updated
---> Package pam-devel.i386 0:0.99.6.2-3.16.fc6 set to be updated
---> Package yum-utils.noarch 0:1.1.1-1.fc7 set to be updated
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: yum >= 3.1.1 for package: yum-utils
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: yum >= 3.1.1 is needed by package yum-utils
---> Package yum-utils.noarch 0:1.1.1-1.FC6 set to be updated
FC7 version of yum-utils seems to have been added to FC6 update stream
My description of problem was inaccurate. I had failed to spot that package
yum-utils.noarch-1.0.2-2.fc7 had been installed with some earlier batch of
updates. Yum acted on this misinformation.
Immediate problem solved by
yum remove yum-utils
yum-util-1.1.x is only available in Fedora Extras Development.
yum-utils-1.0.3 is the latest release for FC6.
You must have have install/updated yum-utils, with the the Fedora Extras

Did not knowingly install this package, (a) I have no need for it, (b) neither
would I have chosen FC7 package for use on FC6 system.
You are correct in thinking that Extras Development is active, there are a
couple of packages installed from there to solve application problems.
I suspect someone made a mistake since 6th Nov, which I was unfortunate enough
to bump into, but the problem has gone away which is all that matters.
