Ok, you want to disable the updates repo(updates-newkey replaced it). This may help or it may do nothing.

I would try splitting the updates up and see if that helps. Yum can get a little goofy if you try to update too much (one of the reasons they suggest to update at least once a week). Update just Firefox and see if that works. Then go from there. You can do things like "yum update a*" to split the updates into smaller groups.

You forgot to disable updates (as I said above).

How did you initially install F9? Was it via yum upgrade?

No I didn't install fedora through yum...

I installed it from Media....

I didn't have this problem before until I updated about 400MB update including new Kernel 2.7.* something..

and this dependency problem is occurring... I wonder how to fix it...

I don't think its due to new-key repo... I used to use it for my updates before..


Cheers!

Check your repositories list.

At some point did you install from rawhide for e.g?

See the various utilities in yum-utils

There are alternatives to yum. In fact, I just upgraded from F9 to F10, and the upgrade left a few F9 packages installed that cause YUM to fail for me after the upgrade.

On choice I like to have on my system is the Smart Package Manager, smart, which can handle RPM packages independently of YUM. (It can handle other distribution's repositories as well if you've got a need for that.)

To fix my YUM problem using smart, I did a yum install smart, went to a terminal window, did a su -, and a smart --gui to start smart in GUI mode. When initially started in GUI mode, smart will prompted me link to all the RH repositories, but I just "added" the "core" and "updates" ones. After the "cache" was updated, I clicked on "Edit" and "Fix all problems." Smart then identified problems, and showed me a description of what needed to be done to fix them - basically, erase the F9 stuff. Next, I clicked on the "run" button to implement the suggested fixes, which I needed to confirm after a second display of the proposed changes. Then I closed the window, and YUM worked fine after that.

Theoretically, you can use smart to do all you upgrades and package installations, but the default configuration connects you directly to the central Red Hat repositories without any mirror definitions, so it is not really a usable tool for updating and installation. But it is quite handy for fixing problems.

Thank you so very much for your suggestion.. It worked!!!!


I installed smart..

and now its working... the problem occurred because I had installed all packages of yum using

yum install yum-*

There was a security breach a few months back. The had to build new master keys for the new repos, thus repo X became repo X-newkey.
