Angry Updating PERL or any package depending on PERL gives error message


When using the standard update icon from Fedora 15, Sincs about a week or so I get the following error message:

Code:
perl-Scalar-List-Utils-1.22-155.fc15.x86_64 requires perl = 4:5.12.3-155.fc15 : Success - empty transaction
The update software is trying to install "Perl-4:5.12.4-159.fc15 (X86_64)".

There is no way for me to get past this message, so I have to disable this update to prevent the error.

When updating GIT I get a related error message:

Code:
1:perl-Module-Pluggable-3.90-155.fc15.noarch requires perl = 4:5.12.3-155.fc15
perl-Scalar-List-Utils-1.22-155.fc15.x86_64 requires perl = 4:5.12.3-155.fc15
1:perl-Pod-Escapes-1.04-155.fc15.noarch requires perl = 4:5.12.3-155.fc15
1:perl-Pod-Simple-3.13-155.fc15.noarch requires perl = 4:5.12.3-155.fc15
4:perl-libs-5.12.3-155.fc15.x86_64 requires perl = 4:5.12.3-155.fc15 : Success - empty transaction
Does anyone know what I can do to make clear what the problem is? I.e. maybe do something to solve the error?

Thank you all for your time.

Revert to rpm, and leave yum out of it.

Plan A:
grab a copy of perl-4:5.12.3-155.fc15, or whatever the offending rpm is, & run
Quote:
rpm --force --nodeps -uvh perl-4:5.12.3-155.fc15.rpm
Plan B:
Quote:
rpm sadly lacks a --middle-finger option when you want to do stuff anyhow, so I would try
rpm --force --nodeps -e perl*.rpm
If it asks, don't uninstall dependent packages.
note the package names being removed. Then install from your cd with

Quote:
rpm -ivh perl*.rpm
followed by
Quote:
yum update

Thanks for the effort, but I chose to reinstall (cause I couldnt find the rpm) and that got rid of any problem I had. I have a preference for KDE, and though I like the way GNOME 3 was designed, I couldnt get it to do things the way I see it (for instance the workspace was forced linear, which I dont like).

P.S. I suspect it was a repository problem and as no one else was having it, it may have been caused because I mixed Fedora with Fusion repositories.

You occasionally get away with that, but it usually ends in tears.
