Description Vladimir Benes 2012-08-23 07:09:22 EDT
Description of problem:
I have update repos from alpha-2 to alpha-3 but there are a lot of deps broken now.. after I run pkgenpack -u setup I got error like this:
Failed to create '/root/updates-2012-08-23-.servicepack': the (libffi.so.5()(64bit)) requirement could not be resolved

but then yum helper is still running so no other processes can correctly install anything. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.grab some system that is older than the newest one 
2.give the old system new repositories 
3.execute pkgenpack -u kernel 
Actual results:
yumBackend.py keep running

Expected results:
yumbackend should be stopped again

Can you reproduce this with an up-to-date PackageKit? If so, what's the output of pkmon when this happens? Thanks.
