What are you trying to update from and to? Note that Fedora 12 has been EOL for quite some time.
F16 -> F16. This is a system that has been upgraded a few times. It looks like one of the upgrades, possibly F12->f13, forgot to remove alchemist (alchemist doesn't seem to be in the subsequent repos at all).
Right, the simple fix would have to be to remove it; there's not much else we can do here.

All the Best, Bob
