Is your Fedora update failing due to 'scriptlet' issue? Here's the quick, easy fix

Update: While the simple fix below seems to have worked for me, what Fedora experts are sugggesting is slightly more complicated. Start reading here and click through to find the recommended fix. (I suspect that my solution was easier because I didn't install anything until I resolved the SE Linux problem on my system.)

Original post begins here:

It's all over the Fedora forums, mailing lists and bug trackers: A bad update is causing software updates to fail.

It has something to do with SE Linux.

I got my updates to go through and returned the box back to normal with these three commands:

# setenforce 0

# yum update

# setenforce 1

That's it. Everything is back to normal.
