Description Peter Robinson 2011-05-14 08:28:10 EDT
The upgrade (using yum in this case) is broken from F-14 on a standard gnome desktop install due to package conflicts with the old polkit-desktop-policy package.

  file /etc/polkit-1/localauthority.conf.d/60-desktop-policy.conf from install of polkit-0.101-6.fc15.i686 conflicts with file from package polkit-desktop-policy-0.98-4.fc14.noarch

and one more time: f15 polkit-desktop-policy is 0.101-6.fc15 and does not conflict. again, how did your update miss this?

Discussed during 2011-05-16 Fedora QA blocker review meeting [1].  Reserving decision until additional yum update information is available.  Note, that yum updates are not the supported/recommended upgrade procedure.  Therefore, it is unlikely that this issue would block the release.  Day-0 updates to the 'updates' repository may be sufficient to address a 'yum' distro-sync upgrade issue.

Discussed at the go/no-go meeting of 2011-05-17. Agreed that this is not a blocker; as described it affects only yum upgrades, which are explicitly not supported and not specified in the release criteria. Additionally, no-one claims to be able to reproduce this while several say they have done yum upgrades and _not_ seen this, and no-one has seen a similar issue using any supported upgrade mechanism.

Going to close these as I don't have the full logs. It seems I forced removal with rpm and let yum clean up the problem by pulling in the associated deps.
