Comment 1 Ervin 2016-07-11 09:54:09 UTC
The error is with yumex-dnf. 
I updated the program using the terminal without any problems.

Comment 2 Dmitry Tantsur 2016-08-06 11:08:09 UTC
Hi Ervin, sorry for hijacking your bug, but this error seems to be related to yumex-dnf. It appears every time when an updated package has new dependencies to install or a package replaces another package. As you've noticed, updating via the "dnf" tool in terminal works. This is 100% reproducible. E.g. I'm seeing right now:

And the transaction finishes correctly.

This is not fixed, please don't just close it:

Comment 4 Karl Latiss 2016-10-31 22:37:41 UTC
This is still occurring with yumex-dnf-4.3.3-1.fc24.noarch and seems to be related to A recent update with debug enabled shows two un-handled transaction errors.

Comment 5 infove 2017-01-20 23:37:01 UTC
Still happening on Fedora 25 with the latest DNF Yumex.
But these blokes will keep ignoring it for a few years, then close when Fedora 25 will be "end of life"
Been there done that.
Don't hold your breath!

Comment 6 Donald O. 2017-02-03 07:13:11 UTC
Fedora 25:
Error(s) in building transactionupdate : chromium-freeworld-libs-media-56.0.2924.76-2.fc25.x86_64

Does this mean Tim has stopped development of yumex-dnf?

Correct. From that GH ticket: 

>I have not been able to find the time to maintain yumex-dnf for a long periode of time, so i have deceided to stop the project and orphan it from Fedora.

Comment 11 Fedora End Of Life 2017-07-25 21:43:40 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '24'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 12 Fedora End Of Life 2017-08-08 15:30:46 UTC
Fedora 24 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-08-08. Fedora 24 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 13 Alex Villacís Lasso 2017-08-22 15:44:28 UTC
Still happening on Fedora 26. In 26, yumex-dnf just shows a dialog box with a python backtrace, then terminates.

Comment 14 Woi 2017-08-31 13:57:13 UTC
@Mike: Thanks for the reply.

@Alex: Tim stopped the development of yumex-dnf [1]. But there are plans to replace it with dnfdragora in Fedora 27. See 
Bug #1438671


Comment 15 infove 2017-08-31 23:29:12 UTC
Yeah, keep replacing with all these wonderful new things that come around... for a year or two... until the next "developer" looses interest and moves on! What was wrong with yum? Nothing.

Comment 16 Roel van de Kraats 2017-09-01 06:12:45 UTC
yumex-dnf allows me to quickly see which packages are updated and what changes they have. Is any other tool available that provides this 'low level' functionality? I'm running xfce.
