This is a problem with libhif and undefined symbols => reassigning libhif

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2015-01-23 12:49:24 UTC
As far as I can tell, that symbol is supposed to come from librepo, seems to be a regression in

ldd /lib64/
reports no missing symbols with librepo-1.7.11 installed.

Reassigning (again, fun).
