I don't know why no-one else is pointing out the obvious, but this is
just the same perfectly known issue that's been brought up dozens of
times over the last few days and is mentioned now in the Alpha release
notes. To upgrade from F11 Alpha to current Rawhide, you need to do:

yum update rpm\*

first. Then it will work fine after that.

Isn't that the source of this whole messy thread? Just a couple of
people who didn't see that memo?
