Description of problem:
While downloading rpm's yum displays download progress for file and overall
downloads progress as percentage information.

downloading from another mirror. After this percentage overall progress is not
well calculated. This could lead to value over 100% (as on attached screenshot)

It is easy to reproduce.
Try to update few bigger packeges and unplug ethernet in the middle of
downloading process for a while (not too long not too short, few seconds to
force yum to try another mirror) or disable wireless and plug ethernet after a
Steps to Reproduce:
1. while yum is downloading rpm's, unplug your ethernet cable

yum screenshot with more than 100 percent overall progress
If you upgrade to the latest python-urlgrabber this should go away almost all
the time (incl. the case in the screenshot). Although for all corner cases you
need yum-3.2.17, when that comes out.

same bug with newest python-urlgrabber 3.0.0-8.fc9
I have allready uptodate python-urlgrabber.
And was able to reproduce ths bug once more (see attachment).
Can you show the top part of that output ... as I said there are certain
conditions where urlgrabber can't fix it itself, for instance if the remote end
doesn't give urlgrabber the full size ... or if it all gets downloaded but then
Does it sound like any of that could have happened to you?

Ok, after being very confused for a bit, I see the problem.
This was actually fixed in
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-5396 which is still in

took the version from there.
I'll move it to updates now.
