I am seeing the same problem after upgrading a system on software RAID-1 from
Fedora 8 to 10. The Fedora 10 upgrade went fine except the boot loader upgrade
option didn't work (which I have seen on other systems before). I took the
usual route of repeating the upgrade but selecting the third option to install
a new boot loader. Now the Fedora 10 installation boots fine but when I did the
first yum update the rpm failed to install the entry in grub.conf with the
error

grubby fatal error unable to find a suitable template

I noticed that I had a grub,conf.rpmsave with...

default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 ro root=/dev/md1 nodmraid rhgb
quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64.img

but that the current grub.conf has...

default=0
timeout=0
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64 ro
root=UUID=3adeca51-506e-4b51-aea7-c0ca9525ec36 nodmraid
        initrd /initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64.img

I was able to manually add the new kernel to grub.conf using /dev/md1 for
root. I am assuming that the new use of the UUID label is screwing up attempt
to add the grub entry when the new kernel is installed. I would also note that
this
machine was originally installed with Windows RAID drivers by the vendor so
that
I have to use nodmraid to keep dmraid from getting confused by the tattooing
on the drive. Perhaps this is related and the wrong labels are being read?
Any idea on how to debug this problem further?
