    Just found the same problem 20 minutes ago.
    Can't use update system and software sources is empty as well.
    Looking for a fix as well.
    Hope I don't have to reformat to fix this, too much work to do.
    My last reformat was about 3 months ago due to a similar issue.
    Keeping fingers crossed for a resolution to this issue.
    That's why we all leave Bigpond ISP.
    Once you use linux, learn a few basics, you'll never go back to the windows darkness.

    Angry PackageKit Unusable !

    I've found another "failed to get a TID:"-post in the forums. However, the solution posted in that thread, namely to killall packagekitd, didn't help here...

    Also to me now Package Kit is unusable.

    In the meantime I'm using Yum Extender...
    I hope a solution soon. Thanks !

    yup, same problem. Upgraded from fedora 8 yesterday and updated today, thought that I had done something wrong, so I went through the whole preupgrade process again, only to have the same problem. Well, I hope this is fixed soon...

    Lightbulb Found something that helps

    Dear all,

    I had the same trouble after updating Fedora 9 this morning.
    I changed two values in the /etc/dbus-1/system.conf as follows:

    old version:

    <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.DBus"/>
    <allow receive_sender="org.freedesktop.DBus"/>

    new version:

    <allow send_destination="*"/>
    <allow receive_sender="*"/>

    After a reboot I could install software again.

    I would appreciate, if some could help me and tell me if there is any alternative, to just allow everything with "*".

    Thank you very much!

    As root, edit: /etc/dbus-1/system.conf

    and change the next lines:

    57,58
    < <allow send_requested_reply="true" send_type="method_return"/>
    < <allow send_requested_reply="true" send_type="error"/>

    by:

    > <allow send_requested_reply="true"/>

    and remove:

    66,67
    < <allow receive_requested_reply="true" receive_type="method_return"/>
    < <allow receive_requested_reply="true" receive_type="error"/>

    you can still use command line yum to install packages, it gives a DBus eror but the packages install fine

    Code:
    yum install <whatever>
    ...
    successful
    ....
    ERROR:dbus.proxies:Introspect error on :1.58:/org/freedesktop/PackageKit: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file (rejected message had interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable" member "Introspect" error name "(unset)" destination ":1.58")

    So it says:

    > <allow send_requested_reply="true"/> instead of the two lines:

    < <allow send_requested_reply="true" send_type="method_return"/>
    < <allow send_requested_reply="true" send_type="error"/>

    Same Problem and fixed by darth01

    I had the same problem. Package Kit error after update. I used the fix suggested by darth01. Make sure to backup the original system.conf file before editing (as root):
    Code:
    cp /etc/dbus-1/system.conf ./etc.dbus-1.system.conf
    The file format is XML and it's easy to mess it up. I tried to just comment out the two lines 57 and 58, but that didn't work, and booting after that caused me no end of grief. Luckily I was able (again, as root) to:
    Code:
    cp ./etc.dbus-1.system.conf /etc/dbus-1/system.conf
    and I was back in business, and could go back and edit the file correctly!

    He suggests deleting two lines further down in the file (lines 66 and 67) but I found those were in a comment and so deleting them is unnecessary.

    After I had the correct line in the system.conf, then deleted the other two, saved and restarted, it works perfectly. Good luck. And thanks again to darth01.
