anaconda repeatedly dies on fc6->f8 upgrade with error 'adding package to transaction failed'
Last modified: 2008-04-22 11:55:42 EDT
Description of problem:Every time that I try to upgrade one of my machines from
fc6 to f8, I get the error 'adding package to transaction failed'. This is
performing a network install using HTTP.
I am attaching the dump file from the debugging window below
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Turn off machine
2.Place Fedora 8 rescue CD in CD tray
3.Turn on machine
4.Boot to Fedora 8 installation
5.Select HTTP as installation method
6.Select upgrade mode
7.Configure new boot loader
8.Watch anaconda spin for a long time to generate dependencies
9.Watch anaconda barf when it starts the install.
The installation terminates with the above error.
I would expect to have a machine running Fedora 8 by now
Please see attached log dump file

Does the package kernel-126.96.36.199-42.fc8.i686.rpm exist on your HTTP installation
No. Actually, I have kernel-188.8.131.52-107.fc8.i686.rpm.
