FC15 preupgrade failue on java-1.5.0-gcj-javadoc-

In the process of running preupgrade for FC14 to FC15 here and am stuck with a fatal error at the point after Reboot where the packages are installing. There were 2703 to update at the start and its down to the last 400 or so. The error is in te screen shot below, but basically its saying it cannot install the package and to check the installation media.

I'm running the install from the hard disk and there is more than enough room for the files, nothing is full, ran a rescue CD to check the file systems for problems, etc. all looks good and I can read/write to the location where the file is stored.

One thing I DO notice is the screen shows a size of 235MB, yet looking on disk the file is showing 14,650,536 bytes for both the old and new versions. I've tried to replace the RPM with one from Fedora's FTP site but its also the same size as the original and gives the samer error.

How do I go about correcting this or bypassing the file so that the install can finish?

Right now I'm stuck with half a FC14 and half a FC15 server here and obviously that doesn't run very well.

Got a hint from

and looked in /usr/share/javadoc/java from the LIVE CD and found the only file there was a symbolic link back to itselfs for the FC-14 version. I removed the directory (including the symbolic link in in with

rm -rf /usr/share/javadoc/jave and rebooted to the Preupgrade installer mode and its now continuing as expected.
