Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-03-21 13:54:00 EST
This was done on a 7.2 plus all errata system.

Whoever put the big rpm update together did not do proper testing!  This set 
of updates CANNOT be installed with freshen (rpm -Fvh) as the announcements 

Somewhere along the way (for good reasons I assume) the file 
/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/poptmodule.so was moved from the rpm-python 
package into its own package (python-popt).  With up2date installed (I had 
previously updated up2date with RHBA-2002:044-12, the freshen (my prefered 
procedure) is no possible.

The only way I could update was to issue rpm -Uvh.

This should really be against "python-popt" component since that is the source
package but that component does not currently exist.

Dito.  I get the same problem.  Here is the output from:
rpm -Fvh popt* rpm* python-popt* gnorpm* kdeadmin* rpm2html* rpmfind*
    error: failed dependencies:
            poptmodule.so is needed by up2date-2.7.46-7.x.2

Install the python-popt package.

FWIW, this isn't an rpm problem.
