The upgrade log from the system
Description of problem:
I upgraded my system from Rel 10 to Release 11 yesterday from DVD. I had a lot of extra packages such as perl modules which were not upgraded. Issuing a Yum update did not change the situation, I cleared the cache manually, and then I was able to upgrade all of the remaining packages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 to Fedora 11, Yum version 3-2.22-4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. While in F10, install perl modules
2. Upgrade to F11 from DVD
3. yum update and observe that nothing gets updated
No packages get updated
Yum should have least updated and allowed the user to upgrade.
We've essentially worked around this problem. The new cachedir default includes the $releasever so stepping on the toes of the previous release is going to be hard to do.
