Yum at the command line works fine. Found references to a similar bug in FC6,
which was apparently fixed, yet my problem looks suspiciously similar.


Comment 3 Peter Davie 2007-08-23 09:36:15 UTC
I've found that this is package specific- some packages cause the exception
(which occurs during "Resolving Dependencies" so it seems to be packaging issue
rather than a update daemon related one.

The ones I had to de-select to get the update to work were:
1) flac
2) fuse
3) lzo(?)

However, the "bug" is still serious since the packages affected are on the main
update server

Thank you for the report. However this has been reported to the incorrect
component. Reassigning from "up2date" to "pirut". Feel free to report any
further bugs you find to our bug tracking system.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-01-29 03:42:54 UTC
This should be fixed with the current version of yum available in the updates repo
