This is a broken upgrade path. It's a bug with the package.

However, if you're upgrading to the DVD, yes, there will be 
broken deps from updates-testing. Since updates-testing of 
F(n-1) is a moving target that can pass GA of Fn's NVR set very 
quickly, forcing F11 > F10 in all cases is unacceptable and 
would stunt releases that aren't (Rawhide - 1).
