mysterious fail dialog.

the icon in my task bar showed I had updates. I tried to apply them, and got the attached dialog which isn't really helpful. Success ?
How did you initiate the update? Right click, update system? I'm not sure why we fail like that -- do you get an identical error message when doing "yum update"?
yeah that was just a right click & update.
yum update from the command gives a more helpful message..

Does "pkcon update" give you a proper error? Thx.
$ pkcon update

I've fixed this upstream, thanks:

yum: emit a proper error message when we fail to depsolve and then have nothing to do. Fixes rh#466006
