output from "yum update kdenetwork-common" showing error in transaction check
I'm trying to upgrade from 17 to 19 (cf. bug 980543). I figured I should make sure 17 was all correct first; I've upgraded from 13 -> 15 -> 17 this week and there may be some cruft around.
I ran package-cleanup and saw this:
Package 7:kdenetwork-common-4.8.3-1.fc17.noarch has installed conflicts kdenetwork < ('7', '4.6.95', '10'): 7:kdenetwork-4.6.2-2.fc15.i686
yum update kdenetwork-common
Yum proposed to update 40 dependencies (!!), so I said it was OK. It then proceeded to install the packages and ended up with:
Total 3.1 MB/s | 19 MB 00:06
Running Transaction Check

** Found 132 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
So I am reporting it. I'm not sure why it says to report it against "rawhide," given that I'm running FC 17. I realize problems aren't getting fixed in that release, but is there a known workaround?
I have attached the entire output.
I'm sorry but in this case the message to report the bug is not supposed to be there, it's a leftover from older days - this is not a bug of yum, it just reported you a broken state of your system.
One of the problems I can see is the xz-lzma-compat package, you need to uninstall it. Of course there is the other issue that yum tells you - you have 132 pre-existing rpmdb problems (see the output of yum check), you will need to take care of them in a similar way.
