Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. starting/clicking Add/Remove Software
I noticed that this exception occurs when yum is unable to connect to the
repositories/mirrors (http error 404). I managed to solve this problem by

Does this happen reliably? If so, can you try with
(will be in updates-testing later today) and see if things work better?

Error: Missing Dependency: yum >= 3.2.5-2 is needed by package pirut
An updated pirut packages is available in the Fedora 7 Updates Testing
repository which should help to resolve this problem. Can you install this
package by running
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update pirut
and then see if you still can reproduce this problem?
