I can't use Software Updater either. And yum doesn't work either.
First I had a crash, where the dump indicated that the livna repository was a

Then I had a crash, where the dump indicated that the freshrpms repository was a
problem. So I removed freshrpms.
Then I had a crash, where the dump indicated that a column ("checksum_value")

# yum update
