fpaste showing problem with skip-broken.py

Description of problem:
Yesterday, there was a bogus "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/skip-broken.py" on my system, which broke yum.  http://fpaste.org/paste/5963 -- attachement 1.

At the time, there was no "skip-broken" package installed, according to rpm.

This morning, a similar issued was caught on freenode's #fedora channel:

   http://karl.kleinpaste.org/.../yum.txt -- attachment 2 [details].

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


How reproducible:

Unknown.  But once the condition happens, the only way to run yum is with the "--noplugins" switch.

Additional info:

In both cases, temporary workarounds were:

   yum --noplugins

and of course, something like:

   cd /usr/lib/yum-plugins ; mkdir Hide ; mv filter-data.py Hide/

Hope that's enough info...

It looks like the gentleman with the kleinpaste error had the filter-data plugin installed -- however, this was causing an error.

This may actually be separate from the first observed problem, seen in the first attachment, since:  at that point, yum's skip-broken plugin was _definitely_ not installed, as reported by rpm.
Comment 2 seth vidal 2008-09-12 08:07:19 EDT
the first problem appears to be a file not belonging to a package conflicting with the installed version of yum.

the second problem is a dupe of bug 460963

Well, a fedora person in #fedora thought I should bring the problem to your attention -- the first problem was a system that was working fine, until applying your transitions over to updates-newkey.

And if you read the description in the topic, you'll see that this is a broader issue than just these piddling examples.

Have a good weekend. :)
