linux : FC9 -i386 yum update Error

I did a fresh install of F9. One of the first things that I did after install was run “yum update” to get the latest updates. About half way through, the process got stopped by SELinux. I disabled SE and tried to rerun “yum update”. The update would no longer work however, due to a missing dependency – Perl.
Here is the last few lines where the problem becomes apparent:

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -e –nodeps perl

Found the solutions solve this issue

rpm -e –nodeps perl
yum install mod_perl
rpm -e –nodeps gnome-python2-bonobo-2.22.1-2.fc9.i386
