Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 611918
Yum fails, apparently during background activity. Automatic window asks for bug report to be filed.

Description of problem:
Every so often a window pops up with a Python stack trace, asking for the bug to be reported.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Start up "Add/Remove Software" or "Software Update" from the System Administration menu.
It also happens unpredictably while I am doing other things.
Window pops up containing stack trace.
Package manager works.
uname -a output:
Linux eiffel.house 18.104.22.168-124.fc13.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Jun 11 09:38:12 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
yum list yum (to try to get version number) says:
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: InstallMedia. Please verify its path and try again
Maybe this is because I ran the update from Fedora 12 from the DVD to get over the /boot disk space problem.
Stack trace text is:
Error Type: <type 'exceptions.ValueError'>
Error Value: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'ALL'

Can you get a screenshot of what you're seeing?

Screenshot showing error window.
Here is the requested screenshot. The error window pops up immediately after the "Add/Remove Software" window. It starts smaller and without the details shown. I've clicked on "More details" and expanded the window to show the whole thing.
