error message from YUM



Hi, everyone,
	I am running F10.  I attempted to review some yum groups using the
Add/Remove Software button, and the window gives me the following error:

Error Type: <type 'exceptions.TypeError'>
Error Value: rpmdb open failed
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 2314, in
<module>
    main()
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 2310, in
main
    backend = PackageKitYumBackend('', lock=True)
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 182, in
__init__
    self.yumbase = PackageKitYumBase(self)
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 2253, in
__init__
    self.repos.confirm_func = self._repo_gpg_confirm
  File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/__init__.py, line 589, in

    repos = property(fget=lambda self: self._getRepos(),
  File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/__init__.py, line 395, in
_getRepos
    self._getConfig() # touch the config class first
  File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/__init__.py, line 192, in
_getConfig
    self._conf = config.readMainConfig(startupconf)
  File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/config.py, line 774, in
readMainConfig
    yumvars['releasever'] = _getsysver(startupconf.installroot,
startupconf.distroverpkg)
  File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/config.py, line 844, in
_getsysver
    idx = ts.dbMatch('provides', distroverpkg)


If I am reading this debug message correctly, it appears that a lock
file is in place.  But the path is not given.

If I use a terminal and do yum commands directly (I tried several, but
didn't keep a log) they seem to work correctly.  So this appears to be
some lock that is generated by the Add/Remove Software utility, and not
yum itself.

Any clues?  Looking up the yum help on line didn't provide any
illumination (as I expected, since this appears to be the window, and
not the utility).

Regards,
Les H
