Software update fails - bad update in repo?


Hello All,
I am running Fedora 17 x86_64, and keep the system up to date.
For a while now (maybe 10 days?) the following updates have been presented...

motif-2.3.4-3.fc17(64 bit)
motif-devel-2.3.4-3.fc17(64 bit)

Whenever I try to install these I get the following message...

"Failed process request: openmotif-mwm-2.3.3-3.fc17.x86_64 requires openmotif=2.3.3-3.fc17: Success-empty transaction"

I'm only guessing, but it looks to me like the updates may have some incorrect dependency info. Where/who should this be reported to in order to get it fixed?

Cheers,
Terry

Hi:

Here's a Fedora webpage that talks about reporting bugs.
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers

This page documents common bugs in Fedora 17 and, if available, fixes or workarounds for these problems ;

Here's additional information about those pkg's that you posted. Hope it helps-

And the debugging information in regard to the motif-2.3.4-3.fc17:
