I imagine the cli version does the same thing, so no surprise there.
I was madly installing the packages needed to get it to work; this one
might have been the one that finally did it:

http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/development/x86_64/os/Packages/preupgrade-0.9.8-2.fc10.noarch.rpm

I downloaded that and installed it with "rpm -Uvh".  I may have had to
get one or two others from development to satisfy its requirements.
Hopefully that'll be clear.  After that, it should work!
