Description Jonathan Smith 2007-04-29 21:49:36 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

  yum.noarch 0:3.1.7-1.fc7

How reproducible:

  Once was enough

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update yum
Actual results:

Updated: yum.noarch 0:3.1.7-1.fc7
Dependency Updated: yum-metadata-parser.i386 0:1.1.0-1.fc7

Ah, good! As expected, but then...

$ sudo yum -y upgrade
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 82, in main

  File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/fastestmirror.py", line 83, in postreposetup_hook
    repo.urls = repomirrors[str(repo)]
AttributeError: can't set attribute

Expected results:

normal yum upgrade procedure

Additional info:

Went to #fedora-devel for help. Mistake. Google search and found suggestion

sudo rpm -e yum yum-metadata-parser --nodeps

Then rpm.pbone.net search to find earlier versions

sudo rpm -ivh yum-3.1.2-1.fc7.noarch.rpm yum-metadata-parser-1.0.3-2.fc7.i386.rpm

And, back in business, able to update other packages, e.g., gcc, kernel, etc.
