Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 827686
Freshly updated F17 (from F16 via preupgrade) fails with "yum update -y"
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:22:22 EST
Description of problem:
My Acer Aspire One netbook was updated from Fedora 16 to Fedora 17 via preupgrade. Before preupgrade, the system was fully updated.
Once preupgrade ended, the system booted up fine, but the kernel it is running shows it to be 3.3.7-1.fc16.i686 instead of fc17. So, I tried to run "yum update -y". That bombs out with the following error:
"Error: requested datatype primary not available"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yum version 3.4.3
everytime I run "yum update -y" that error occurs and nothing gets updated.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. f16 -> f17 via preupgrade
2. reboot and do the install
3. reboot and run "yum update -y"
Yum should have updated whatever that needs to be updated. I'd done yum clean ll, rm'ed the *.db files and nothing seems to help.
none for now.
> "Error: requested datatype primary not available"
This seems like yum is saying that it's downloaded a repomd.xml for one of the repos. you've specified but it contains invalid data (it doesn't contain a primary, which is required).
