There were warnings about rawhide not being installable for a bit.

That's what I did.

There are a few other things that have higher versions in F10. That caused
me a bit of grief. The dejavu fonts change also caused some problems.
Something that couldn't be updated pinned some other package that was
needed for another package and skip broken couldn't figure out how to
fix things. (It would be nice if it could at least tell it couldn't
succeed rather than going on in an endless loop.) There are also a few
kde-i18 and kde-i10 packages that have conflicting files.

For some things I uninstalled them in F10 to get the upgrade to succeed and
then the other stuff I cleaned up later using rpm to do a downgrade.
I used package-cleanup to find things that needed looking at.

That I can't help you with.

There's been a bug filed on that from about 4 months ago. The problem
seems relatively harmless, so you don't need to do anything about it.
