I was trying to update my Fedora 15 amd64 when a Error Notification popped up saying "An unspecified TRANSACTION ERROR has occured". More details: "could not add package update for fedora-release-rawhide-15-3(noarch)updates: fedora-release-rawhide-15-3.noarch".
I have fedora 12 dual boot windows/ xp on intel d845gvsr intel motherboard, intel celeron processor 2 ghz, inbuilt board graphics, 1 gb ddr1 RAM. I get this notification that updates available and when I try to download it it fails and I get the following error. Transaction error. "could not add package update for abrt-plugin-runapp-1.0.8-2.fc12(i686)updates: abrt-plugin-runapp-1.0.8-2.fc12.i686"
Ok. Using Release 12 Constantine Gnome 2.28. Whenever I try to update my computer via de Software Update Manager that pops up every now and then I get an error and the Software Update fails.
The error says its a repository not found, but I am very new at this and have no clue as to where to fix this. Alongside of this, is the fact that since one of the updates is failing, the rest don't install either. So the updates keep on piling.
This is the error shown in the More Details window:
The details of the Unspecified Error are belowQuote:could not add package update for fedora-release-rawhide-15-3(noarch)updates: fedora-release-rawhide-15-3.noarchThe screnn shot attached of the error message!How will I able to get my system updated.After sometime it is today that I installed Fedora 15 and there are 316 updates to take place
I think I had this problem before but I don't remember what was done to correct it. I just tried to do an update and got this error message.

I've been trying to update Fedora 15 for weeks. I always end up with a transaction error and the update stalls. The error reads: GPG keys listed for RPM Fusion for Fedora Rawhide-free repository are installed but they are not correct for this package. Check that the correct key urls are configured for this repository. This is far too involved for a linux newbie, I think my only option is to reformat and reinstall. This is so frustrating, there are 250 MB of updates available that I can't access.
I switched from Ubuntu to Fedora and I'm having a little bit of trouble understanding why I cannot update my system. Fedora seems to be a little bit more complicated than Ubuntu to update and to do other things... I'm still willing to try it because it has a good reputation and good reviews so I will go ahead and give it a shot but before I do that I need to update it. I have an HP pavilion notebook dv2000. Just installed Fedora 15 and my system is telling me that I have over 700 updates! when I click on install updates I get an error:
Transaction error An unspecified transaction error has occurred. More information is available on the detailed report. Then on the details this is what I get:
Fedora 15 software update "unspecified transaction error occurred" at system info before installing updated list. After unchecking every (no arch) update, all the rest (i686) were installed. now all (no arch)updates remain on the list to be installed.
Getting "DBus error : Unable to get transaction id from packagekit." when trying to update. I can't update or install software through the package manager anymore. The yellow exclamation point won't go away on the toolbar.

I have boot as a separate partition, this time around I have set it to ext4 for the first time. That partition is only 250 Mb, but that has always been sufficient in the past, perhaps I am holding too many kernels or kernel versions?
When trying to do an update or upgrade, I get the following:
Running Transaction Warning: RPMDB has been altered since the last yum transaction. Traceback (most recent call last):
I have tried yum clean all, yum clean metadata, rpm --rebuilddb, and even removing /var/cache/yum. yum info and yum list both work fine. Naturally, this yum problem is preventing me from updating my system.
After an automatic update from Debian I get the following error while starting a root terminal: An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for gnome-terminal. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly. Failed to contact configuration server: the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-bus session bus daemon.
can someone please confirm or correct my understanding of automatic upgrades in F14:as far as i currently understand the automatic update mechanism in F14 it works the following way:
1.) PackageKit (packagekitd) periodically checks for updates using YUM as it's backend and displays a nice icon in the tray to inform the user when upgrades are available.
2.) PackageKit (packagekitd) only runs when a user needs it and terminates afterward. When a interactive Desktop session is running, packagekitd is always running because it's spawned by the session manager.
3.) When using a console only system (without X) or when nobody is logging in on the local graphical console for a longer time i need yum-checkupdates for configuring automatic upgrades (same as done per default in CentOS).
So, I logged into my laptop this morning and tried to run a VirtualBox VM and it barked that I had not setup the kernel module yet. I found this odd since I was running it fine yesterday... so I was poking around my system and noticed that there was a yum update yesterday

I should have know, it's named after a windows "feature".On my laptop (Acer Aspire 5310) Fedora 10 offered me an automatic update to Fedora 11. Because I trust any automatic update Fedora brings to me (it's tested right) I automatically pressed yes. It started some downloads and everything seems to run pretty smooth. Then I had to reboot the computer, press that button as well.... and it reboots into Fedora 10 (untill the end of the bar). After that I have no clue what happens, because before X is started I get a black screen with nothing on it, even ESC doesn't do anything :O I don't even get the "_" to indicate the laptop is doing anything.
I run a few dozen dedicated web servers all running CentOS 5.5. A long time ago when one server was apparently compromised, I was urgently advised to sign in to the server and run "yum update" at least once a week to ensure that everything which I had installed using "yum", would get updated with any recently available updates, including security fixes, and that one reason I might have been hacked before was because I hadn't been doing that.
So, I'm still not sure if that would have prevented the original break-in, or how much this has reduced my chances of being hacked, but I've been faithfully signing in to each server every week for the past few months and running "yum udpate". Most times, this results in a lot of patches being downloaded and applied, so it's clear the machines are not doing it automatically. I figure it's about time to learn how to make the machines do this on their own. Is there a standard way to make "yum update" run automatically, every day, or every week? Yes, I'm sure there are many ways to do it, but is there a single way used by the majority of webmasters of CentOS sites who have automatic updates set up? Googling a bit for "make yum updates automatic" turned up some threads like:
in which people describe writing their own custom scripts to do yum update automatically. This seems odd. It seems like the kind of thing that there would be a standard way to turn on. Also, is there a reason that virtually every newly provisioned dedicated server does not have "yum update" set up to recur automatically? If it's true that people break into websites using exploits that have been found in older versions of webservers and other software, and that sometimes these breakins would have been prevented by the newest patches, wouldn't it reduce the number of websites being compromised if the OS had yum updates turned on automatically by default?
I ran an update last night just before I went to bed and shutdown my laptop.This morning, I turned on the computer and clicked on a link in an email. Firefox started but crashed almost immediatly. The same happened with Epiphany and Chrome. The only working browser I had left, was Opera.I started Firefox from the terminal, and saw this:
Code: $ firefox GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'apps.gecko-mediaplayer.preferences' is not installed
I've made a terrible mistake that I changed files in /etc/yum.repo.d and /etc/yum.conf.Now I can't get update by yum update, saying that ERROR: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again. Now I'd like to reset everything to default.What can I do now?
On two Centos5 servers, yum gives a segmentation fault error when trying 'yum update' or 'yum check-update' after running 'yum clean' :
The error is the same for the other computer except while attempting to update the rpmforge repository. Nothing has really changed on the servers in some time and 'yum update' worked fine on each yesterday and I have no idea why they would both suddenly fail!
I am using ubuntu 9.10.While running a partial update through System->adminstration->update-manager. I am facing error as 'Error Authenticating some packages". Please find the attached, screenshot of the error and sources.list file output.
