This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda. We may also be putting
together an updates.img for this and several other issues that will allow you to
use the F7 installer to upgrade. I'll update this bug when we do that.

The f7-updates.img from comment #5 works fine for me. Thanks!

novice user like me, that he should include CLOSED bugs into into search. It may
be not so obvious.
