Red face Package Updater bugging and not updating in FEDORA 8


From the last several days my Package updater is not working. It shows about any new update available but whenever i try to see or apply any available updates it tries to open the package updater(Pirut) and it fails all the time giving this message:

EXCEPTION OCCURED
An unhandled exception has occurred. This is most likely a bug. Please save the crash dump and file a detailed bug report against pirut at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla

and in the end it give me three options of DEBUG, SAVE TO FILE and QUIT!

when i press DEBUG,the message box as well as the package updater disappears and nothing happens!
and when i press SAVE TO FILE it just saves the whole test thing on to my hard disk in a text file format and ask me to post it!
and QUIT does what it does!

and let me tell you that it was working Perfectly before a week and my OS is also working superbly!

but i want this problem to be sorted out!

NOW PLEASE BUG ME OUT!

Try installing yumex and then get all the yum updates. Try from the console (with root logon) to do a yum install yum* and a yum update yum*

This would bring in fixes to pup. Then hopefully your updates will work again.

I had to do what I just recommended. I did it for Fedora 7.
