pup stalls on update

i moved up to FC8 as soon as it was released and i'm struck by the great and many changes over FC7 (not that 7 was a bad release) ... but i have had one trouble that has failed to resolve itself... when pup is run to update software it goes to the "Retrieving Software Information" the bar fills... then nothing happens... days pass... and still that bar sits untouched.

out of habit i tend to mess with as many things as possible when i recieve a new release... i also have a tendency to re-install clean whenever i chose... the few problems i've had with this release are rarely so consistent (i attribute that to my need to play with all the features and try numerous packages of software) but the updater has rarely no had this problem despite the many fresh times i've used FC8.

anyone else having this problem?

Hello:
Try typing from a terminal
pirut
and see what if any output is generated.
It may be hanging on looking for the install media [which is enabled by default in F8] * New Feature*
If so, you can disable this feature from Add/Remove Software
Edit \
Repositories \
and disable the
InstallMedia repo
or
gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/Fedora-install-media.repo
and set
enabled = 1
to
enabled = 0

allow me to re-iterate... the updater HAS worked for me in more than a couple instances... but i have never incurred this problem and later, on the same installation, not had the problem.

the Fedora Install Media Repository does not exist in my yum.repos.d
... i assume that this feature was never enabled.

output when piruts "Retrieving Software Information" bar fills and stops such as in the instance i have spoken of earlier:

/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pirut/Progress.py:86: GtkWarning: gtk_progress_set_percentage: assertion `percentage >= 0 && percentage <= 1.0' failed
self.pbar.set_fraction(fract)
