This an upstream issue, the rpm exit scriptlet fails for avahi.fc7.

The obsoletes should correct the fedora-release.

Then we should have them uninstalled locally, pirut for sure, that
prevents NetworkManager from being installed as a dependence later. Or
we risk having a old packages on the box that may come back to haunt us
at a later update.

Make it a big notice, and that if those packages are useful to you
please report the usage to the mailing list. That if you don't uninstall
those packages, the install is now outside of OLPC support and that the
admins will have to enable the fedora & fedora-updates repos to update
those packages to current releases themselves.
