# yum clean all
# yum update selinux-policy
Updating : selinux-policy-3.10.0-61.fc16.noarch 1/2
Error unpacking rpm package selinux-policy-3.10.0-61.fc16.noarch
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/share/man/man8/ftpd_selinux.8.gz;4ed6a8ee: cpio: open
selinux-policy-3.10.0-56.fc16.noarch was supposed to be removed but is not!
Last successful update was Tue Nov 29 10:57:12 PST 2011.
After noticing this failure, I turned off presto (by setting minimum_percentage=0), and pointed the fedora-update repository to the baseurl.
I also did a restorecon -Rv /usr/share/man, all to no effect. I confirmed that none of my filesystems are full. What am I forgetting?
A complete update shows the following packages are failing to install (all with a similar error message):
I apologize in advance for the categorization. I'm not sure where to put a suspected build problem bug.
Well, what does
# lsattr /usr/share/man/ |grep man8
On reboot, the disk was corrupt, and after fsck, the problem was not reproducible. I am closing this report.
