I've tried this with yumex on a fresh install of F10 using the updates repo included in install, same results.

Also, Smart package manager, apt-get, and every other package manager I've tried, including the built-in Add/Remove Software all die a horrible python-related death. I'm running the i386 platform, so this can be marked as affecting both platforms.

Let me know what details other than the above need to be added to this bug. I'm re-installing F10 without the updates repo to see if this is an updates-introduced bug. Will report back with the results.

I also have a F10 installed from rawhide that I'll check to see if this machine has been affected.

This is fixed in yumex-2.0.5 currently in updates-testing

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update yumex
