The time has come for me to upgrade my F10 server to something more
recent. Right now, I don't care if its to F11 or F12. Neither is
working for me.
OK, so, I invoke "preupgrade" to do the work.
After some initial chugging, it dies with the message:
> requested datatype primary not available
This is strange. I *just* finished preupgrading my F12 test system to
F13 Beta. That went fine (compared to this, OK, I had to find a valid
install.img file and type the new URL in by hand, but that's minor
compared to this problem).
Seems I can't even get started.
Things I've tried:
1) I edited my /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora*.repo files so that the baseurls
point to fedoraproject.org instead of redhat.com
2) yum clean all
3) (cd /var/cache; mv yum yum.f10)
4) preupgrade --clean
The GUI error box seems to indicate that "This could be caused by a
missing network connection or a bad mirror."
Has anyone else seen this? I'd like to be able to upgrade my server....
The error message gives *me* no indication of *which* repo it is having
problems with. Is it the last one listed in the xterm I invoked it
from? Or maybe the "next" one (which I can't tell because it hasn't
printed anything yet)?
If I click on the RETRY button, I get a different error:
> Repository preupgrade-main is listed more than once in the configuration
Any ideas on how to work around this?
