OK ... maybe I misinterpreted what the OP wants to do. I was thinking
that he was looking at the possibility of a yum update between
versions ... maybe not.
So I will clarify ... If you are upgrading via yum, don't do "yum
update yum" after you have updated the repositories to the new Fedora
version ... do it before. My point is that doing a "yum update yum" is
not good in all situations when upgrading.
I did report my problem (and solution) on the list (1) and was told to
follow the yum upgrading procedure (2) and yum upgrading issues were
not bugzilla-worthy (3).
