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):
Unknown. But once the condition happens, the only way to run yum is with the "--noplugins" switch.
In both cases, temporary workarounds were:
and of course, something like:
cd /usr/lib/yum-plugins ; mkdir Hide ; mv filter-data.py Hide/
Hope that's enough info...

kleinpaste showing installed yum packages, as well as the error in question.
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.
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. :)
