I could solve it by installing the yum rpm directly via rpm but I
needed the force argument. Somehow the yum was not upgraded correctly,
give the hint that the old yum was still there.

you had yum 3.2.23 from f10 updates-testing installed but F11-GA has 3.2.22 available.

so you were updated to python 2.6 from 2.5 - which 'lost' the newer f10 yum b/c it is in the python 2.5 path.

You can try:
1. download yum 3.2.23 from F11-updates
2. install it with rpm -Uvh pkg


1. export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages
2. yum update yum

I'm curious if this second one will work.
