yum grouplist does not show all groups

+3 votes

The command yum grouplist does not show all available groups in Fedora 19. I had the same problem
before in CentOS and other versions of Fedora. As an example, I can install

yum groupinstall "Development Libraries"

but yum grouplist does not show such a group. Is that a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

yum group list hidden (or yum grouplist hidden).

And why do hidden groups exist at all? I cannot see any point of hiding  "Development Libraries". Is it very infrequently used? No. Is it  dangerous? No. So what is the point?
My guess is that the group is not intended (for whatever reason) to be  installed on its own, rather as a part of some environment like Development or Development and Creative Workstation.

Remove /etc/yum.repos.d/packagekit-media.repo. Then do yum clean all and yum grouplist.

If it still failing, the re-install your Util package again.
# yum install yum-utils

There's one package that I can't get upgraded, and it's driving me up the wall because every time I run an update via yum or yumex, I have to
remember to exclude it: firefox. Here's the results of my latest try:

Transaction check error:
file /usr/lib/firefox/browser/defaults/preferences from install of firefox-22.0-1.fc19.i686 conflicts with file from package firefox-22.0-1.fc17.i686

I tried using swap:
yum swap firefox*.fc17.i686 firefox*fc.19.i686

because the man page said that that was simply a short form of remove/install, but yum interpreted it as an update. Maybe I'll have to download the file and use rpm to do it, but there should be a way to force it via yum.

Seems like a rev number is missing in this dependency error from Yum:

# yum -y update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

References to "ruby(release)" seem incomplete. Does this suggest a config error somewhere? rpm says ruby- is installed.
