yum update errors


Hi,

I was trying to update my system few minutes ago, and I got this error:
Code:
Error: Package: coreutils-8.4-8.fc13.i686 (@updates)
           Requires: coreutils-libs = 8.4-8.fc13
           Removing: coreutils-libs-8.4-8.fc13.i686 (@updates)
               coreutils-libs = 8.4-8.fc13
           Updated By: coreutils-libs-8.4-9.fc13.i686 (updates)
               coreutils-libs = 8.4-9.fc13
           Available: coreutils-libs-8.4-6.fc13.i686 (fedora)
               coreutils-libs = 8.4-6.fc13
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
** Found 8 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
1:NetworkManager-glib-0.8.1-8.git20100831.fc13.i686 is a duplicate with 1:NetworkManager-glib-0.8.1-6.git20100831.fc13.i686
coreutils-8.4-9.fc13.i686 is a duplicate with coreutils-8.4-8.fc13.i686
coreutils-8.4-9.fc13.i686 has missing requires of coreutils-libs = ('0', '8.4', '9.fc13')
freetype-2.3.11-6.fc13.i686 is a duplicate with freetype-2.3.11-3.fc13.i686
1:java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-43.1.8.2.fc13.i686 is a duplicate with 1:java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-42.b18.fc13.i686
mysql-libs-5.1.51-2.fc13.i686 is a duplicate with mysql-libs-5.1.50-2.fc13.i686
poppler-0.12.4-6.fc13.i686 is a duplicate with poppler-0.12.4-5.fc13.i686
setroubleshoot-server-2.2.102-1.fc13.i686 is a duplicate with setroubleshoot-server-2.2.99-1.fc13.i686
I tried these two commands:
Code:
yum clean all
yum clean metadata
But it did not work. I think its a conflict between dependencies and I wish someone can help with that.

what repos do you have on ???
it looks like you might have turned fedora-TESTING on
if you did -- turn it OFF


-- these SHOULD BE OFF --
*-testing
rawhide ( -- big time OFF )

Have you tried the error massage suggestion ???

My repos are:
update
fedora
rpmfusion
adobe (flash)
google (chrome, talk)

I have not turned the testing on, and I have not also tried the suggestion on the error message. I do not want to skip dependencies.
Is it possible there is a conflict on the repos themselves?

Thanks

This is due to duplicate packages present.

faizlo,

Do rpm -qa |grep -i 'packagename'

ie.
#####################################
rpm -qa |grep 'coreutils-libs'

coreutils-libs-8.4-9.fc13.i686
coreutils-libs-8.4-9.fc13.i686
#####################################

and remove the duplicate package using rpm -e

rpm -e coreutils-libs-8.4-9.fc13.i686

do an updatedb command at the end.

Resolved

So, I guess now these warnings are because of the updatedb being run and yum noticed that!

If there is nothing I may have missed, I guess I am done.

I think it is solved now. Please take a look at my post right before you and correct me if I am wrong, because I could update with some warnings about the rpmdb.

Thanks

it looks to be fine
but a bit of advice
the " Presto" yum plugin has given me( and a LOT of people) nothing but trouble

you might want to uninstall it . But that is your choice .

the default and one other " download-only " and maybe "prioritys " if you install third party repos

Fast-download ??? Some like it. Some , nothing but trouble with it . mileage varies.

OK! I guess you are right, I remember that yum-fastest mirror has slowed down my yum! Yes, this is my experience with it, I added it after this problem for no particular reason other than trying it again.

Any way, thanks to you all, I will mark this thread "solved", although I would love to know why did this happen? last time I updated was few days ago and it went flawlessly as usual.

that is life with fedora , things "just" happen , seeing as it is a very FAST development distro

but most likely a mirror was not yet fully updated

don't get me wrong i like fedora BUT it requires A LOT of work on YOUR PART to keep it up and running

I agree with John VV, I am almost sure the repo mirror was not fully updated yet when you did the update yourself.
Yet, I can tell you from my experience, that Fedora is getting back to compete hardly with Ubuntu which is in the end, very useful to us, the Linux community people.
