preupgrade needs anaconda-yum-plugins and createrepo

System was booted from PXE and option "repo=http://<host>/<path>" was passed to the installer. No additional repository was added over the "installation" one.
The first boot went well but now, no update is possible with yum since preupgrade needs unavailable dependencies :
Steps to Reproduce:
su -c "yum update"
Error: Missing Dependency: anaconda-yum-plugins is needed by package preupgrade-1.0.1-1.fc10.noarch (updates)
Error: Missing Dependency: createrepo is needed by package preupgrade-
All updates abort
Properly updates the system
$ yum repolist
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
repo id repo name status
fedora Fedora 10 - i386 enabled: 2,220
updates Fedora 10 - i386 - Updates enabled: 3,626
I got hit by this too it seems:
Installing F10+updates gave me preupgrade but no createrepo, which makes preupgrade backtrace when it comes to generate metadata, and we lose.
Any chance of an updated f10 package before f11 ships? This is pretty annoying
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
If I understand the above correctly, this appears fixed in preupgrade-1.1.3-1.fc10.src.rpm (and f11/f12).
Snippit from .spec:
# F10 anaconda provides its special depsolving magic as yum plugins
Requires: createrepo >= 0.9.7-7
