I use Fedora 9 with PackageKit and have all updates installed from standard Fedora repositories. Today Package Kit reported new updates to be installed. The installation fails during "Testing Changes" faze with the following error:
An internal system error has occurred
A problem that we were not expecting has occurred.
Please report this bug at http://bugs.freedesktop.org with the error description.

No updates are being installed. Closing PackageKit and running the update process again always fails in the same way.
Hmmm. It seams that the bug is no longer reproducible, although I have absolutlely no idea what has changed. All updates were applied successfully today. The list of packages to be updated did not change I think. Reducing the priority of the bug.
Please reopen if you can reproduce. Thanks.
