Missing Dependency: NetworkManager-glib = 1:0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3623.fc9 is needed by pack


I have just just attempted to use my Fedora 9 for the first time in a few weeks. It tried to do it's automatic check for updates but the updates fail with the following error:

Missing Dependency: NetworkManager-glib = 1:0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3623.fc9 is needed by package 1:NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3623.fc9.i386 (installed)

I searched this forum and found nothing. My google search rendered some similar problems from others but they all assume you know something about Linux....and I am a Linux NEWBE!

If anyone out there thinks that they can walk an idiot through a fix for this, the idiot would greatly appreciate it.

Try updating NetworkManager-glib before you try to update NetworkManager. Wait a sec, before you try that try this (in a terminal).

Code:
rpm -qa | grep NetworkManager
or
Code:
yum search NetworkManager | grep installed
and see if 2 NetworkManagers or 2 NetworkManager-glibs are installed. If there is a duplicate installation of one of those then remove the older one with yum or rpm (If you remove the older one then you should not worry about having to remove some of the programs that depend on it; hovever, if you remove the newer one you'll know because you will be removing a bunch of other programs too.)

I have a similar problem installing Update Fedora-2008-8602

Code to be updated:
NetworkManager-glib-1:7.0-0.11.svn4022.4.fc9
NetworkManager-gnome-1:7.0-0.11.svn4022.4.fc9
NetworkManager-1:7.0-0.11.svn4022.4.fc9

Error report

Test Transaction Errors: file /etc/avahi/avahi-autoipd.action from install of avahi-autoipd-0.6.22-10.fc9.i386 conflicts with file from package avahi-0.6.16-4.fc6.i386
file /usr/sbin/avahi-autoipd from install of avahi-autoipd-0.6.22-10.fc9.i386 conflicts with file from package avahi-0.6.16-4.fc6.i386

My yum repositories:
Fedora9-i386
Fedora9-i386-Test Updates Newkey
Fedora9-i386-Updates
Fedora9-i386-Updates Newkey

Attempted fixes that failed:

yum upgrade

yum remove avahi-0.6.16-4.fc6.i386 (This was successful but did not solve problem.
--skip-broken switch
--exclude=avahi-0.6.16-4.fc6.i386

Disabling combinations of the Fedora9 repositories.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is it a repository problem? Suggestions are welcome.

Let me guess, you tried to update from FC6 to F9 via yum?

If this is the case, save yourself a lot of headaches (and time) and just do a fresh install. In most cases you will wind up having more down time fighting these ghosts than you would spend doing a fresh install. With about fifty percent of the yum upgraded systems I have seen there is a never ending(seemingly) barrage of these goofy errors(like this) that need to be cleaned up or there are performance issues that just magically go away with a fresh install.

Fresh Install

When this error happened to me, my FC9 had beed working fine. Since I am not a Linux expert and don't have the patience to wait more than a few hours for a responce on these web sites, I usually end up doing a fresh install to fix most problems. That works every time and that is how I fixed this problem.

Thanks, Lazlow and Enochs. No, not a yum upgrade, but an upgrade using a burned DVD. I was afraid that reinstalling is the answer. As i remember it took forever to do all the updates afterward, and that was 5 months ago. And then reinstalling some of the additional apps, passwords, certificates ...

I'll keep looking for a fix, but it may come to that.

updates problem

OK. The problem was that my attempts to remove the duplicate fc6 package gave a bogus success return, followed by some dbus stuff indicating an error.
The trick was to use rpm --erase --noscripts packagename to get rid of the offending package.
