Nigel, have I got egg on my face!  When I posted my reply the update
was progressing smoothly. Unfortunately I got distracted and did not
notice that the status window was still open but had become hidden
behind another application.  Synaptic is broken on F9.

My apologies for the screw-up.

By the way, apt and synaptic were not installed on my installation of
F10 because few fedora 3-rd party repositories seem to be supporting
apt . I just installed both applications, fired up synaptic, and
synaptic crashed whle performing the gpg check.
