FC4: "yum update libcddb" fails -- missing dependancy problem:

Hi! I could use some help. I'm running Fedora Core 4, I'm new to this distro, and I'm trying to update my system for the first time since installation (I've updated some packages individually, though). I get a dependency error when running "yum update". I think I've narrowed down the problem to one package, libcddb. I try:

# yum update libcddb

I had a look at Yum's .hdr files in /var/cache/yum, and it seems that the latest version of libcddb (1.1.0-1) provides, while the currently-installed version of libcddb (1.0.2-2) provides If anyone can tell me a/the method for updating this library without breaking things, it would be much appreciated -- cheers!

well my friend, I have exactly the same problem...
So, assuming that you are not working with the livna repositories, type this in a shell, obviously, with the respective permissions:
yum install yumex
yumex is an excelent graphical tool, that lets you choose the software you need.
Once installed, and running, just, uncheck libcddb and update the other software.
Don't know what's happening, I have seen a lot of strange things like this.
BTW, libcddb blocks up2date too. Could it be a debian package?
See you!

It was a broken update, a circular dependency in two packages, with one of them breaking the ABI:
