I can't "yum update" my FC20 system at the moment:

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

If this is somehow my problem, how can I resolve it? Here is the output of yum repolist:

It looks like the package python-hawkeye in Version 0.4.11 is still in the updates-testing repository, so it couldn´t be accessed.

You can install it with the following command:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install python3-hawkey

This should resolve the problem.

Greetings Mikkl

Thanks but shouldn't somebody be urgently trying to fix the updates repository? Either back out the dnf package that depends on python3-hawkey, or push python3-hawkey? I'm inclined to believe there may be some issue with the package if it hasn't been pushed out of updates-testing yet, so am not excited about pulling it in explicitly.

Bob: yes, we are. There's no issue with hawkey, it just didn't get upvoted as fast as dnf.

The update submitter should have included dnf and hawkey in the same update, not submitted them separately. See https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2014-3046/hawkey-0.4.11-1.fc20 .

Thanks Adam, that's very reassuring.

As yum suggests: "You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem".

Fedora is a bleeding edge distribution and these kinds of things are not unheard of. However, it's good if someone (like you in this case) informs the packagers of these problems so they'll be fixed sooner.

Understood. I just wanted to raise the flag, mainly, in case nobody else had yet. All seems well now in the update repository.

I avoid --skip-broken because that seems likely to produce a set of packages that have not been tested together much, which might have its own set of problems. Trying to find the right balance of Stability and Fedora-ness for my needs :). Your mileage may vary.

Excellent!

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install python3-hawkey worked for me.
