Description of problem:
While clicking the "Review" Button shown in the "Update System" window, it throws an error saying.. "An Internal System Error has occurred".

This window is called :Update Viewer in the manual.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10  (i386).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.select System->Administration->System Update
2.once the number of updates were displayed, press Review
3.This had thrown the Error.
Actual results:It had shown the complete list of updates, which is as expected, but had thrown the error in an error window.

It was throwing the error and stopped there when i tried "Apply Updates"
It was throwing the same error even while i was trying to select different updates available in the list.

Expected results:
It should not throw the error and the ApplyUpdates should update the system.
