This string was copied from "Fedora 15 won't do automatic updates" since
it applies to a totally different subject.

First some background:
I upgraded from F13 to F14 using preupgrade some months ago. I like to
stay one release back from the most current release. I like to be on
the cutting edge but I have an aversion to bleeding.

After a while I began to get upgrade notices about gimp that would not
install due to a missing dependency. That was when I noticed that it
was trying to install an F13 package. After much effort trying to
resolve the missing dependency I decided to run preupgrade again on Sun
Jul 10. That solved the problem with the gimp package but now I don't
seem to be getting any package update notices.

Enough with the background already:

I spent some time in Google looking for instructions on how to 'verify
the version of your "fedora-release" package' but came up empty. Could
you elucidate this point more thoroughly.

As you suggested I checked /etc/yum.repos.d/ for a hard coded reference
to F13. The only hard coded reference to F13 was a line in
packagekit-media.repo. I changed the line in packagekit-media.repo
from name=Fedora 13
to name=Fedora 14

The output of "yum -v repolist" after the change is:

[root@mushroom yum.repos.d]# yum -v repolist

Default yum Repo List Shows Old Release Version

to makes this shorter:

* what shows "cat /etc/redhat-release"
* what says "rpm -qa | grep release"

it si not normal that anything is using wrong repos
if there are no manually crapped repo-files under
/etc/yum.repos.d/ and the current release-package
is installed correctly

You would learn about RPM and basic queries as covered by the "man rpm"
manual. For example, run

rpm -v fedora-release

in your favourite terminal. It should print the Name, Version, Release
and Arch of the fedora-release package. Version should be 14 for Fedora 14.

This would be just a first step at analyzing your package list. The
next step (once your repo config targets F-14) would be to check for
duplicates and orphans with the help of the package-cleanup command from
the yum-utils package.

Unimportant. Those name= fields are descriptive strings only.

I think you mean

rpm -q fedora-release

Yes, it was just a typo.
