Description Stefan Neufeind 2013-01-19 12:40:53 EST
According to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedUp preupgrade was only usable until Fedora 17. But PackageKit still demands it to be installed on F18.

# rpm -e preupgrade
error: Failed dependencies:
        preupgrade is needed by (installed) PackageKit-0.8.7-1.fc18.x86_64
Comment 1 Stefan Neufeind 2013-01-19 12:42:07 EST
Oh, I now see I read that on the PreUpgrade-page ...

[...] Preupgrade deprecated for Fedora 18. Preupgrade does not at present and will not ever work for upgrading to Fedora 18, or any version after [...]
