Thank you - here's the output:
[root at tehogee1 ~]# pkcon get-distro-upgrades
Distribution: fedora-11
 Type: stable
 Summary: Fedora 11 (Leonidas)
[root at tehogee1 ~]# cat /etc/fedora-release
Fedora release 11 (Leonidas)

Is there a disconnect there? It looks to me like the output of that first is 
in direct contradiction to the output of the second command, no?

I'm looking at this notification right now. It says 
"Notification from KPackageKit
Distribution upgrade available
Fedora 11 (Leonidas)
and there's a button to the right that is labeled
"Start uprade now"

There seems to be something telling KPackageKit that I'm eligible for an 
upgrade even though I've already upgraded, but what would that be?
