GCstar will not update. YUM error message; PERL-Switch dependency

I have just upgraded my Fedora 14 to Fedora 16 using the DVD on my Laptop (Specs below)

I fixed every little problems I encountered, expecially with the updates. There were 806 updates to be made!!!

The only problem I have left is with updating my Movie collection software ; GCstar.

Right now I have version 1.61 from my old install and it works perfect so far.

YUM offers me to update it to version 1.6.2-1.fc16

When I tried I got the following error message:
ERROR: Error in yum Transaction : [u'ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:', 'perl(Switch) is needed by gcstar-1.6.2-1.fc16.noarch', u'Please report this error at http://yum.baseurl.org/report']
I then proceeded to find and install the most recent FC16 "perl-switch" package and installed it with success.

Problem is I still cannot update GCstar and I get the exact same error message. It's like it does not see the Perl-Switch package as being there.

Anyone have an idea on this?

System Specs:

Acer Aspire 5552-3557 15,6 in screen.
AMD Athlon II X2 P340 CPU
ATI HD4250
500GB HD
Wifi B/G/N (Nplify)
Refuse and resist.
