This is because you didn't format your root fs and there were stale rpm locks.
We've worked around this in our current codebase, but you should really always
format / on installations.
I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time. I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide. If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
