     Just now I checked for updates an there were 17 (20060716), no 
kernel. 'yum update' was successful, except for....

  Updating  : indent             ####################### [13/34]
install-info: /usr/share/info/indent.info.gz: empty file
error: %post(indent-2.2.9-13.fc6.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 
1   .... and there was no 'Cleanup' statement for  indent

  No power failure (I'm on an UPS anyway), use of Ctrl+c or kill. 
Seems indent had a packaging problem tho.

  Then immediately running the script to chk for dups.....
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/yum?highlight=%28yum%29

 # yumdups
Duplicates were found:
indent-2.2.9-12.3.1
indent-2.2.9-13.fc6
