I have tried being selective and choosing just one or two of the updates in the he updates list, hoping that after they went through I'd be able to do the rest but to no avail. I would like to submit a photo of the actual updates, but I think I remember reading that it's not allowed on this mailing list. SO I have just copied the names of the updates, and the error message I get when it fails. Hopefully someone can help me out with this!?

It sounds like you are trying to upgrade from F16 to F17?  Via what method?

And you have F15 stuff still on your F16 system?

Maybe a good idea would be to first run yum distro-sync ....  And find whatever else is hanging around from F15.
