Description of problem: /usr/bin/pup crashed and left system unstble. Several libraries (librpm-4.4.so, libdb4.6.so) were missing after the crash so restore of system was difficult without a working rpm and sendmail would not start without libdb4.6.so

What were you upgrading from/to?
Comment 2 Wojciech Komornicki 2008-11-11 13:51:21 EST
I was running Fedora 9 but after the upgrade /etc/fedora-release was changed to 9.93 (Rawhide)

Each week I run the Software Updater (/usr/bin/pup).  I saw that there was a kernel update and so I chose that by itself, updated the system and rebooted. Re-ran Software Updater and chose all the packages shown to me.  During the update Software Updater crashed creating the log file I posted.  During the recovery process I noticed that my system had been updated to (the pre-release of) Fedora 10.

I did not make a specific choice of updating to Fedora 10 because on this box I was waiting for the stable release.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-11-12 17:26:23 EST
How were you running pup on Fedora 9?  In Fedora 9, we moved to the use of PackageKit instead of pup/pirut?
Comment 4 Wojciech Komornicki 2008-11-12 18:20:14 EST
From the launcher I choose Software Updater.  I did notice on a newer installation that Fedora 9 now uses PackageKit. If I notice in Software Updater that I am presented with modules for which a reboot is recommended, I download these on their own, reboot the system and then install the rest.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-11-12 20:35:44 EST
How did you install/upgrade to Fedora 9?  pup really shouldn't have been left

And I suspect that the root cause of your problems are API changes in the underlying system that aren't reflected in the old version of pup you had available :/
Comment 6 Wojciech Komornicki 2008-11-13 08:31:22 EST

Since the crash, I have been using yum in "manual mode" and just recently installed PackageKit with the gnome interface.
