I have just upgraded my Fedora 16 to 17 (x86_64). When I run yum update, it reports"Found 193 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s)" (see attached file for details) and doesn't complete. It appears to be raising conflicts on packages that should not conflict, because they are at different releases and may be different architectures, as far as I can tell. For example:
alsa-lib-1.0.25-3.fc17.x86_64 is a duplicate with alsa-lib-1.0.25-1.fc16.i686
How can yum come to the conclusion that fc17.x86_64 conflicts with fc16.i686?
I am baffled. Any ideas out there?
