Description Juergen Bullinger 2008-09-27 05:47:02 EDT
Description of problem:
I downloaded preupgrade yesterday (26th sepbember 2008) to upgrade my fedora 7 x86_64 System to the latest version. It seems to have downloaded all the necessary packages, but froze when it tried to download installer stage 2... and output an error message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I used preupgrade - 0.9.3-3.fc7.noarch (this is what the package manager says when I search for preupgrade among the installed packages)

How reproducible:
If I close the preupgrader dialog and start it again (without deleting any downloaded packages)
I get the same errormessage and the same behaviour. I tried this several times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download preupgrade
2. start it
3. start downloading
4. wait
Actual results:
It displayed "Downloading installer stage 2..." on the gui and seems to have frozen. On the console from which I started it, I got the following output:

[root@localhost tmp]# preupgrade
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 198, in on_assistant_apply
  File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 206, in _do_main
  File "/usr/share/preupgrade/preupgrade-gtk.py", line 371, in main_preupgrade
    (mdev,mpath) = preupgrade.bootpath_to_anacondapath(stage2_abs)
TypeError: unpack non-sequence

Expected results:
Download everything and prompt for restart as described on the fedora page.

Additional info:
It would be nice if preupgrade could be asked to display it's version. Maybe using an about menu item or a -v option.
Comment 1 Juergen Bullinger 2008-09-27 05:50:18 EDT
Is there a Is there a possibility to resume the upgrade manually?
I already did a backup of my data and emails (bigish) and downloaded all the packages. I fear that if I can only continue after some days/weeks probably I have to do all that again :(

Thank you for your bug report.

We are sorry, but the Fedora Project no longer maintains this version of Fedora. Please upgrade to the latest version and reopen this bug against that version if this bug exists there.

As a result we are setting this bug to CLOSED:WONTFIX
