Software Update - Transaction Error


I have 3 packages listed in Software update that will not install. They carry out the "Resolving Dependencies" Then give transaction errors but the detail says "No Transaction to Process".

Other updates are happily being processed. The problem transactions are:
firefox-3.5.12-1.fc12 (x86_64)
xulrunner-1.9.1.12-1.fc12 (x86_64)
xulrunner-devel-1.9.1.12-1.fc12 (x86_64)

The output of "yum repolist" only lists firefox 12 updates.

Any ideas or suggestions of what the problem is and how I can resole it.

Thanks All

You could install packages that don't fail and after that attach the plain text file ("/tmp/yum-errors.log") result from running '/path/to/yum --verbose -d 3 -e 1 update 2>&1 | tee /tmp/yum-errors.log'?

If you have only F12 "updates" repository, then dependancies must be in "os" or "base" repositories, so you must enable them also in /etc/yum.repos.d/ repo files.

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

@DrLove73: I appreciate your suggestion but I do not see anything listed as a pre-req that is not already installed. Your point is well taken though and I will follow up on the os and base repository configs. Thanks!

It looks as though the problem is that nspr is currently installed at 4.8.4 but the installer wants it to be 4.8.6

I have checked and do not see 4.8.6 as being available for download.

I currently use FC12 and pull everything from fedoraproject.org mirrors.

Try 'yum remove xulrunner-devel', then 'yum update'. Also see Bug 632126 and Bug 635334 (awaiting triage).
