View Full Version : Can't update Fedora

16th May 2007, 03:45 AM
I have 276 updates avaliable and I can't get them. When I try to update it freezes and then I get an error:

Error resolving dependencies
Unable to resolve dependencies for some packages selected for installation.

Missing Dependency: geroimo-specs = 1.0-0.M2.2jpp.12 is needed by package geronimo-specs-compat

How to I get this dependency so I can update?

Please, any help will be appreciated.

BTW I get the same error using the "yum" update in terminal.

Try using yum from a terminal logged in as root using
su -

Then first.

yum update yum
yum -y install yumex

yum clean all
then use yumex to select your updates .... 30-50 packages at a time and see if that gets you by your current problem.

You can find yumex installed under Applications / System Tools / Yum Extender

Well that helped getting some updates in, but still get that error.

And when I try to install the dependency I get even more missing dependency errors.

Ugh, please help.

What repositories do you have enabled? Post the complete output from yum update, "even more missing dependency errors" doesn't tell anything useful.
