Apparently I'm missing something here?

All I get is "Update details," "Apply updates," and "Quit."

"Manage Repositories" may come up on another screen or perhaps the 
problem is that presently I am looking at it from an F7 computer?

I just booted the F8 computer, it immediately displayed the PUP screen 
and after being told to do the update shows as above plus a large 
"Insert CD" error message which does contain "Repository Manager!"  I 
somehow missed that ...

Clicking on that tells me it is stymied by "InstallMedia Fedora8."  
Clicking on "Add" brings up a form requesting information that requires 
a "new repository."  I could research that further but the GUI looses 
its element of convenience at that point. 

Curiously "yum update --exclude=tetex*" works without any error 
message.  That will do until I find what to add to the repo list.  This 
no doubt is the result of an upgrade from F7 to F8.  I haven't done an 
upgrade in a long time and thought I would give it a try when I was 
offered the option from the DVD installer.

Thanks for the help.
