Description Paul Johnson 2010-07-06 20:32:12 UTC
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):

How reproducible:

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.

Actual results:

Window pops up containing stack trace.

Expected results:

Package manager works.

Additional info:

uname -a output:

Linux eiffel.house #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?

Comment 2 Paul Johnson 2010-07-07 06:55:46 UTC
Created attachment 429971 [details]
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.
