I have the same problem. I have a couple of FC1 systems and a FC1 test
system and get different results on different systems. If you sure the
required modules are on your system use the command line version
appropriately named up2date and the --force option. As mentioned in the
previous post, yum seems to be the way to go, but you'll have to spend some
time setting it up.
