Description Max Spevack 2008-04-29 12:48:12 EDT
Description of problem:

Using PK to update my system -- error dialog pops up saying "Unknown error" but
when you click the "More" arrow, it tells you exactly what the error is.

See attached screenshot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[spevack@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep Package

Just to be clear, I'm not complaining about the error itself -- I understand why
th error is being reported.

The bug is that in one place PK says the error is Unknown and in another place
PK tells you exactly what the error is.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Right, this should now be fixed with the latest version of PK in F9. Please can
you check and confirm? Thanks.
