Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:22:50 EST
Description of problem:
Transaction error - Apper:
ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:
python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by albumart-1.6.6-1.noarch
Please report this error at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=rawhide&component=yum
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current python version (as maintained by apper) - Python 2.7.3
Every time I run -
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
As above - update fails for
python3 - version 3 of the Python programming language aka Python 3000
python3-libs - Python 3 runtime libraries
python3-tkinter - A GUI toolkit for Python 3
Update should either not be attempted or succeed.
Thanks for filing this bug report.
python 2.5 is very old, and was in Fedora 7 through Fedora 10, so presumably this is a really old albumart rpm.
Reassigning to yum, as the "ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:" message sounds relevant to the yum maintainer, though perhaps it's an apper bug?
Hope this is helpful
The problem must be with the packaging for albumart removal of this package enables python updates to succeed:
%yum remove albumart
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
--> Running transaction check
---> Package albumart.noarch 0:1.6.6-1 will be erased
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Package Arch Version Repository Size
albumart noarch 1.6.6-1 installed 798 k
Remove 1 Package
Installed size: 798 k
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Running Transaction Check
Running Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded
Erasing : albumart-1.6.6-1.noarch 1/1
Verifying : albumart-1.6.6-1.noarch 1/1
update now succeeds.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
