PackageKit error - Fedora 9

I have Fedora 9 - just recently the system loaded some security updates and since than ive been getting the following error message pop up (3 off them at a time) whenever I log in.

Failed to reset client

A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file (rejected message had interface "org.freedesktop.PackageKit.Transaction" member "Cancel" error name "(unset)" destination "org.freedesktop.PackageKit")

Im pretty sure im not the only one -
Is there a fix available?

Wipe out Fedora and install Debian, Windows, Mac OS X, etc., anything but the headache called Fedora.
