When I try to update some packages installed on my system, I get the following message:

The following pacakges could not be found on your system.  Installation cannot continue until they are installed.

In this example, I tried to install the package and it says:

Unlocatable pacakge        Required by
cyrus-imapd                      ('cyrus-imapd-murder', '2.2.6', '2.FC3.5')
cyrus-imapd                      ('cyrus-imapd-nntp', '2.2.6', '2.FC3.5')

I looked on my system for files named cyrus-imapd and there are some, but not in RPM form.  Also I looked on the installation cds and they too don't contain cyrus-imapd.rpm



With kind regards
