Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 435244
yum database not updated on upgrade from f7 to f8
Last modified: 2008-06-04 10:00:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Upon upgrade install from f7 to f8 using full f8 dvd, the yum repository
directory in /etc/yum.repos.d remain unchanged and continue to reference the
fedora 7 directories. The update daemon indicates that over 900 updates are
available. pup hangs if run.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fc7.
2. upgrade install fc8.
3. login as root
pup hangs while attempting to utilize f7 directories to update f8 upgrade
install, while update daemon gives popup indicating over 900 updates available.
pup shows small number or zero upgrades available, and installs them if I
livna configuration was present, but behavior persisted after I uninstalled all
livna stuff and removed their configuration from yum.repos.d
Problem apparently occured when livna access added. *.rpmnew files created upon
update for fedora.repo and fedora-development.repo. After moving out old *.repo
files and renaming *.repo.rpmnew files to take their place, pup/yum began
The hang no longer occurs.
Closing as this problem stopped occuring, but please let us know if you
encounter it in Fedora 9.
