(SOLVED) Cannot update fresh install of F11


I recently finished a fresh reinstall of Fedora 11 on my ASUS EeePC 1000HA today. Once I rebooted, it asked for the usual "first time user thing" and I proceeded. After that screen, I was brought to the loging manager, so I logged in, and was presented with my destkop. I fired up the terminal, added myself to the sudoer's file and did a "sudo yum update" but was given the following error (the beginning of the text got cut off due to how lengthy the update list was):

http://pastebin.org/31225

And idea on what to do?

Well, there are some suggestions at the bottom of that output.
Personally, I'd start with

yum clean all

rpm --rebuilddb

and try again.

Check which repos you've got setup, there may be a clash.

Also, Fedora is the R&D distro for RH, sometimes the repos get twisted and you just need to wait eg a week and try again.
Check on google to see if a lot of people have this issue; maybe it's EEE specific.

I didn't install any new repos so I don't know if that would be the problem. And that makes sense about the repos getting twisted up, and I understand that Fedora is a testing bed for RHEL. I will try your methods as mentioned though.

Thanks.

EDIT: I don't know if it would be Eee-specific because I installed Fedora 11 on this computer numerous times without having this issue.

EDIT 2: I tried the methods they said I should try to use (package-cleanup --dupes, package-cleanup --problems, etc.) and tried "yum update" as root and that still didn't fix it. Neither with your recommendations.

For any of you in the future, I found the cure. Run this command:

`sudo yum --skip-broken update'
