Exclamation Error at the end of a yum upgrade to FC2

Started an upgrade from RH9 to FC2

Did the upgrade to FC1 first, all worked OK, then changed my yum.conf to upgrade to FC2 and at the end it ends up with the error below

When I run a yum upgrade again I get:

No Upgrades available.
No actions to take

Just a bit worried about yum dropping out with this at the end of the upgrade process.

Completing update for ash - 840/845
Completing update for php-imap - 841/845
Completing update for mutt - 842/845
Erasing: XFree86-libs-data 843/845
Completing update for ed - 844/845

Huh - well FC2 uses Xorg and RH9 uses Xfree ... there are lots of other things. In general, I've found the upgrade process dodgy unless everything is absolutely RedHat standard. - Each time you upgrade there will be some variation from the rock-solid version. Repeated upgrades will gradually worsen this until the system breaks. That said:

It looks like the upgrade was successful ... the last stuff is the last command run by yum. It didn't find a module called "select". Only the Goddess of the Penguin (and, possibly, an uber-acolyte or three) knows why it looked for one. Some simple things to check:

Does the installation boot/run OK as it is? What is the output of uname -r ?
(Have you read the faq?)

Read through the release notes for FC1 and FC2 and compare the packages installed with what is expected in the distro. If everything is present and everything works - you may not have anything to worry about... much.

If you have the time to yum update multiple times to raise through the releases - why not just download the FC4 iso and have done with it? You get a clean install and a rescue disk this way. And you get to share.
