upgrade fc6-fc7 failed with message to post bug
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
Was upgrading a fc5 server to fc7. Tried to do this directly doing a cd based
over the network (http). Got a message that I needed to file a bug report.
Did a search first and found the error. It said that it was a bug and that it
would not be fixed because fc5 was to old. So I upgraded fc5 to fc6. Then
attempted to upgrade fc6-fc7. I got a worse result now it won't boot.
Included here are the two dumps. (failed is the attempt fc5-fc7) fc6fc7 is
the fc6-fc7 attempt.
Message PackageSackError: No Package Matching kernel.i686 in both cases.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only have one computer like this
Steps to Reproduce:
This is a panasonic tough book lap top cf72.
Interestingly enough the file that the anoconda message says to upload to
bugzilla will in fact not upload because it is to large. I have placed it on
a server listed above along with the version from the previous message.
I have done a number of these upgrades using the same cd method that is
specificed in the documentation. Frankly most don't work and I end up with
trashed drives. All kinds of different failures each time. Is the problem
that the documented cdrom based upgrade method not actually work????
Did a install fc7 instead of and upgrade and this worked.
