Description Matt Fagnani 2019-03-13 07:04:42 UTC
Description of problem:

While I was testing upgrading from F29 to F30, I got the following dnf system-upgrade error involving python2-rpkg

Problem 2: package python2-rpkg-1.57-6.fc29.noarch requires rpkg-common = 1.57-6.fc29, but none of the providers can be installed
  - rpkg-common-1.57-6.fc29.noarch does not belong to a distupgrade repository
  - problem with installed package python2-rpkg-1.57-6.fc29.noarch

rpkg's changelog on koji showed that python2-rpkg was disabled on F30+ 

* Mon Feb 04 2019 Lubomír Sedlář <> - 1.57-4 - Disable Py2 package on F30+

Obsoleting python2-rpkg on F30+ might prevent the error if it isn't going to be built again on F30+. 

sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=30 --skip-broken --allowerasing showed python2-rpkg being removed.

Removing dependent packages:
python2-rpkg    noarch 1.57-6.fc29       @updates-testing  620 k

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
5 of 5 times

Steps to Reproduce:
In F29 with updates-testing enabled and python2-rpkg installed
1. sudo dnf upgrade --refresh 
2. sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=30
3. sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=30 --skip-broken --allowerasing

Actual results:
dnf system-upgrade to F30 resulted in an error involving python2-rpkg

Expected results:
no dnf error

Thanks for your report.

Comment 2 Matt Fagnani 2019-03-17 06:10:13 UTC
I don't see this python2-rpkg error now since fedora-obsolete-packages-30-30 obsoleted python2-rpkg < 1.57-7.  Thanks.
