Looking at the litany of errors reported in fedup.log, virtually every
Perl module I have seems to whine and they all say they want that
perl-4:5.16.3-266.fc19.x86_64 RPM. That is the perl version installed 
and it's the latest version of perl available for F19. I'm rather stumped.

I will say that at one point the system did spit out a "Reboot to
complete upgrade" message and the system sorta sat there for a minute. I 
thought "Hot dang! Just let it finish up...", but then the module
errors started scrolling by and I lost the message off the top of the
rollback buffer. I don't see a record of that message in the fedup.log
file either, so I think it was just teasing me.

I may rename this machine from "prophead" to "Lucy", since she keeps
pulling the football away just as I'm going to kick it.
