This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Comment 3 Roger Larsson 2010-06-14 10:34:22 UTC
Got an error related to this in what I believe to be a proper fc 12
System Monitor says

Release 12 (Constantine)
Kernel Linux
Gnome 2.28.0"

System->Administration->Software Update gave the message
"no such table: changelog"
all morning - no updates was found. Problem was completely repeatable.
But now when I finally got my Bugzilla user it finds updates... (all 710!)
