Anaconda problem in F10 -> F12 reinstall

Hi. I'm trying to install F12, over my existing F10. I ran preupgrade, and it installed anaconda into the boot menu, without apparent problems. On reboot, however, it fails with the following message:

Unable to read package metadata. This may be due to a missing repodata directory. Please ensure that your install tree has been correctly generated.

Cannot retrieve respository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: anaconda-InstallationRepo-200911081854.i386. Please verify its path and try again.

I must admit to being a bit unclear as to what's going on here. Is it looking in the cached pre-install tree for said repomd.xml, but said tree is somehow corrupt; or is it trying to find it via the network, and failing (for whatever reason). Am I even trying by the correct pathway?
