Fedora 10 upgrade to 11 - preupgrade brings repo issues :(
Hello! I have a Fedora 10 install CD that I used to install Fedora 10 on my laptop. I read on the internet that you can update by doing the following (as root, of course)


yum update rpm
yum -y update
yum clean all

followed by a reboot if a new kernel was installed. One wasn't for me.

yum install preupgrade

I rebooted, and it installed everything...
HOWEVER... When I went to install some packages with:

yum install <package name>
as root...
No matter what package I enter, (did some really really basic ones, like gcc) it seems to complain about not being able to find dependencies. Or gives some other bizarre error. I checked in software sources; fedora 11 repos are enabled. I did a fresh install of 10.

Why didn't yum install correctly? Is it just a stupid rarity that can be fixed by me trying again? Should I try again? Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Do I need to manually refresh the repos? how? I'm used to slapt-get, which isn't too different.

HELP! :eek::confused::eek:

In my earlier experience with Fedora 4/5, upgrades didn't go too smoothly and I ended up just starting from scratch with a CD for the new version. Not sure if it's gotten better lately, but if you did a clean install anyway, it might be easier to just use a Fedora 11 CD.

Works a ton better than any cruddy updates! Thanks!
