FC10: Fedora Core 10 Update System Button Grayed Out

Hello,

I upgraded my FC8 to FC10 today and after the installation, I attempted to install the latest updates in the system. I went to System > Administration > Update System and I am able to see the updates that are available, but the "Update System" button is grayed out. Why?

I tried logging in as root but it says something along the lines of can't authenticate user. I know the password is correct because I can "su - root" to the root account under terminal. Could someone shine some light on this situation for me?

Thank you.

root on the logon screen is blocked because it is a security risk.

Check to see if your network is connected.
Have you all ready rebooted more than once? Did yo update once before?
There may not be any updates?

I upgraded an F8 to F10 and the upgrade went good but reboot left yum, rpm, and python in an unusable state due to a missing or incompatible libpcl4.so from nprs.
It was a total lost.

Check the logs in a root terminal
su -.
cd /var/log
ls
dmesg
tail -n 50 messages

and so forth...

Thank you Slowjet for your reply.

My network is connected and working fine as I am posting from this very Linux PC right now.

I have tried reboots as you mentioned, but they were unsuccessful at resolving the issue. The button still remains grayed out and I know there are updates because it says that there are.

In other news I tried running "yum update" as root to update the system. The first thing it says is this, "There are unfinished transactions remaining. You might consider running yum-complete-transaction first to finish them." I try doing as it says and run "yum-complete-transaction, but it says that command doesn't exist...

yum-complete-transaction is provided by the yum-utils package. As root, run "yum install yum-utils" to install yum-complete-transaction.

The PackageKit is hung and running so another yum can not run.
use top to find the pkg-?? and the pkg-icon pid's #'s
top -b -n 3 > mytopout.txt
cat mytopout.txt

Then use kill to cancel them
kill -s 9 pid pid

then run
yum clean all
yum update

One of the updates is probably Package-Kit (but that may be in updates-testing
yum clean all --enablerepo=updates-testing
yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing


Also run
package-cleanup --problems

Ok. Thanks again for the speedy replies.

This is what I am getting now. It seems that the update is failing at the "Transaction Test" and it looks like there are some FC8 components as the culprits to this issue.

Code:
Transaction Check Error:

How do I resolve these conflicts?
