What's the output of 'rpm -q pirut yum'?
Comment 3 Andrew Piziali 2007-08-20 15:08:22 EDT
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-08-20 17:47:45 EDT
This is fixed with the pirut and yum currently in FC6 updates
Comment 5 Andrew Piziali 2007-08-21 10:50:41 EDT
There do not appear to be newer version of pirut nor yum in the FC6 updates
because when I run the Software Updater (pup), it reports:

    |                     Package Updater                       |
    |                                                           |
    |  Package Updater                                          |
    |                                                           |
    |                                                           |
    |      There are no updated packages currently              |
    |      available for your system.                           |
    |                                                           |
    |                                                           |
    |  [Quit]                                                   |
    |                                                           |

and if I attempt to update pirut and yum using yum, it reports:

    # yum update pirut yum
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running. Aborting.
    [root@elijah andy]# yum update pirut yum

Comment 6 Andrew Piziali 2007-08-21 10:53:32 EDT
ps. You may safely ignore the first of the two runs of yum above because pup was
running when I ran it.  Also, I am using the fedora-updates repository:
    # ls /etc/yum.repos.d
    fedora-core.repo                fedora-legacy.repo
    fedora-development.repo         fedora-updates.repo
    fedora-extras-development.repo  fedora-updates-testing.repo

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-12 14:48:59 EDT
Whoops, thought you were on Fedora 7.  We should be catching the cases where a
mirror isn't up to date there.  Given where FC6 is in its lifetime, updating to
try to fix all of the possible cases there is more likely to break things than
it is to help.
