View Full Version : Help with Add/Remove Software [Solved]

Hi all:

I just installed Fedora 9 on an ageing (4-5 year old) XPC I had laying around and I get this error whenever I try to install anything with the "Add/Remove Software" program:

An internal system error has occured
A problem that we were not expecting has occurred.
Please report this bug at http://bugs.freedesktop.org/ with the error description.

More details

Error Type: <type 'exceptions.TypeError'>
Error Value: object of type 'instancemethod' has no len()

hex_fingerprint = "80740e5" * len(fingerprint) 148037216ple(map(ord, fingerprint))

Can anyone help?
I am stumped.
Thanks. :confused:

Solved. All I had to do was to update the "gpg signatures"
