Description Paul Wouters 2012-07-20 18:18:40 EDT
Description of problem:
dying scriplet caused preupgrade/upgrade to fail during cleanup phase, leaving 2000+ duplicate packages on my system

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
No idea

After booting, i ran sudo package-cleanup --cleandupes which does not abort on failed scriplets and it showed:

  Erasing    : librepor-python.x86_64                   255/1193 
Error in PREUN scriptlet in rpm package vala-0.14.2-3.fc16.x86_64

Comment 1 Paul Wouters 2012-07-20 22:03:04 EDT
note that running rpm -e on vala-0.16.0-4.fc17.x86_64 still gives a scriptlet error.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2013-02-13 21:03:03 EST
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 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.
