    Internal system error has occurred "Yum"


    I was wondering if someone could help me get rid of the following error I've been receiving from Yum. I'm fairly new to Fedora and have no idea what steps I should take in troubleshooting this issue.

    The following message appears when Add/Remove Software is launched. It also pops up periodically in the notification window.

    could not do simulate: Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/", line 3270, in __init__
    self.repos.confirm_func = self._repo_gpg_confirm
    File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/", line 823, in <lambda>
    repos = property(fget=lambda self: self._getRepos(),
    File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/", line 551, in _getRepos
    prerepoconf = self.prerepoconf
    AttributeError: 'PackageKitYumBase' object has no attribute 'prerepoconf'

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Can you try in a terminal as root

    yum clean all
    yum update
    If you still get errors, please post the output here.

    If it successfully updates, then try again to install software through the GUI.
