Description of problem:

Package Updater fails on new FC6 installation.
Floating cursor over toolbar icon brings up baloon that says
"13 updates available"

Selecting "View Updates" option brings up window with title
"Retrieving update information"
displays progress bar, and pops up error window
"Exception occurred"
Window contents:
Component: Software Updater

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
