preupgrade fails to resume an interrupted upgrade that uses rpmfusion repos
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:12:27 EST
Description of problem:
Started preupgrade from scratch, but had to stop it part way through due to lack of time. When I tried to resume the preupgrade later, it crashed when trying to process meta-data from one of the rpmfusion repositories.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time so far. Restarting from the beginning again seems the only workaround.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install packages from rpmfusion (all ffmpeg packages?) into Fedora 11.
2. Run preupgrade.
3. Cancel preupgrade while half-way through downloading new F12 packages.
4. Restart preupgrade.
preupgrade crashes at "Step 1" while trying to process upgrade information from the rpmfusion repositories. (I.e. the step before downloading the installers.)
The upgrade process would continue from where it left off.
I have already successfully used preupgrade to upgrade a similar system to F12, expect that I had enough time to let it run to completion on that occasion. (I.e. I didn't need to interrupt it.)
Oh, it's been reported already ;-).
FWIW, the system experiencing this problem was upgraded from F10 to F11 via preupgrade.
