PackageKit Failure With fedora-release-15-3.noarch

If you are using Fedora 15, you may come across an annoying case when PackageKit (the GUI package installer) fails to install updates because of an RPM package named fedora-release-15-3.noarch. A bug report (716752) exists in the Red Hat bugzilla database. The workaround is simple but is not obvious or intuitive. To install this RPM using PackageKit, first click on the + sign next to fedora-release-15-3 (noarch) to see both of the associated package updates (fedora-release-15-3 and fedora-release-rawhide-15-3). Then uncheck fedora-release-rawhide-15-3 and click the Install Updates button. You are then asked to confirm the removal of the Rawhide repo definitions.
