Comment 1 john posey 2008-01-12 22:34:34 EST
After downloading the source code for pirut (pirut-1.3.28-1.fc8.src.rpm) and
finding the statement where the error occurred and then following the code
proceeding this statement gave me a clue for a work around.  I noticed that srpm
was part of the if statement, after reviewing the repository manager screen, I
unchecked both the fedora source and updates-source check boxes. This worked. 
Software updater was able to proceed with the latest updates.

Fixed in git; will be in pirut-1.3.31
