Description of problem:
On one of our Fedora 10 systems I see this error message when trying to update packages with yum. This is after a reboot so I don't believe there is a problem with dbus being stale, and I also ran yum-complete-transactions and still see the problem.

The below is from updating yum, but other packages fail similarly after the yum update as well.

The main issue is that the GUI package update tool fails because of this.

[root@stupsi ~]# yum install yum

reassigning to packagekit as it looks like it is coming out of that plugin.
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2009-02-02 10:45:55 EST
What version dbus and PackageKit? What's the last 20 lines of /var/log/PackageKit say? Thanks.
Comment 3 Jes Sorensen 2009-02-02 11:02:39 EST
[root@stupsi ~]# rpm -q dbus PackageKit

Doesn't look like there is any /var/log/PackageKit file:

[root@stupsi ~]# find /var/log/ -name \*Package\*
[root@stupsi ~]# 

This system has been updated from Fedora 7 through 8 then 10, if I remember correctly ....
Comment 4 Jes Sorensen 2009-02-11 11:49:40 EST

Is this information sufficient or do you need more info?

Comment 5 Richard Hughes 2009-02-16 10:57:47 EST
Do you still get this with all the latest updates installed?
Comment 6 Jes Sorensen 2009-02-18 11:51:55 EST
I updated yum, Package-Kit, rpm and I no longer see the error message.

Think it should be ok to close this bugzilla.
