has yum error output and a list of packages installed on my system before the command
Description of problem:
After upgrading to fedora 17 (x86_64) from DVD via the DVD's "upgrade existing system" option, reboot and try to do "yum upgrade" [or update--doesn't matter]. yum detects a massive number of missing requisites/conflicts because it is getting confused between the .x86_64 arch and the .i686 arch, or between fc17 and prior ones.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using Fedora install DVD's, install earlier version (e.g. fc15). This is x86_64, but additionally install some i686 versions of packages (e.g. install a bunch of i686 devel packages or libraries that already have their x86_64 versions installed). Install fc16 via the DVD "upgrade" option. Then upgrade (via DVD) to fc17. Reboot and run "yum upgrade"
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install fedora version using DVD "upgrade existing system" option
Repeat this for fc15-fc17
yum will equate package.fc17.x86_64 and package.fc16.i686 and complain about a duplicate
clean upgrade, which happened just fine when upgrading from fc15 to fc16
On one system, the workaround was to list the installed packages and then do a "yum remove" followed by a "yum install" for any package that was more than one rev back (e.g. fc15's)
I assume there were a lot of output with "yum check". There's not much yum can do in this case, apart from help you to fix it.
