Have you got the complete link to the bug report?

Yeh. Just done that, as per my later post with the "<SOLUTION>" added to the 
heading, and posted before I checked the mail.

Thanks for the above, hmmm, dodgy, but works fix. I may have done something 
similar on the earlier install of FC5 on this machine, but as my memory is 
going, I can't remember.

It is interesting that the first installs I did of FC5 on the other machine, 
which were quite early on in FC5's release didn't present any such problems 
with updates, so it would appear that some updated package further down the 
line has caused this duplicated package problem to present itself. It will be 
intersting to view the bug report.

Many thanks for the reply.
