Comment 3 Rusty 2012-06-09 13:41:00 EDT
Here is another one; this time I was using the GUI doing a fix installation after a  large install of most of the KDE programs. Here is the similar report:

ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:
librpcsecgss.so.3()(64bit) is needed by nfs-utils-lib-devel-1.1.5-6.fc17.x86_64

All these errors come after an upgrade from FC14 to FC16 then to FC17. I have a similar situation with an upgrade from FC16 to FC17. All the machines are network conneced all the time; why does the upgrade procedure grab the latest off the Update URL as a full install does. I even had to do a Kernel install/upgrade when I finished the install showing that the latest was not searched for.

A normal install does grab the latest from the web when doing the install. So should the updates. I am running AMD 64 bit a single core Notebook, a Dual Core Desktop and a Quad core Desk top. all machines were upgraded. All machines are giving me the same problem. This is not a good release strategy.

Please let me know of a fix to yum so I can put the machines back into service. Thanks.

 As it says:

> ** Found 180 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
> git-email- has missing requires of git = ('0', '', '1.fc16')

...yum isn't going to be happy until these are fixed. You can use install/remove/reinstall/etc. to fix them.
Comment 5 Rusty 2012-06-12 09:22:45 EDT
I find this unacceptable. This system and the others that are having the problem are upgraded systems, and the packages that are duplicates are packages that are trying to be re-installed to add the older version from an older version of the OS.

Should the upgrade not clean up the old packages during an upgrade? I think so!
