» smart-beta-0.50rc1 (r839) is now smart-0.49.1

With the channel modifications needed to support SUSE 10.2 (the repository layout changed yet again, but this time for the better), I decided to package the current 0.50rc1 beta version of smart as stable (smart-0.49.1-10). Point is, 0.50rc1 is way better than 0.42 ;) If you have smart-beta installed, an upgrade to smart-0.49.1 should be easy (smart install smart, which should uninstall smart-beta). If you run into your favorite package manager not wanting to upgrade because it would break dependencies, just uninstall any of smart-beta-gui, smart-beta-addons, smart-beta-ksmarttray and smart-beta-debuginfo (if they're installed). The following shell snippet should do the trick:
REMOVE=""
for pkg in gui addons ksmarttray debuginfo; do
   rpm -q "$pkg" && REMOVE="$REMOVE $pkg"
done
[ -n "${REMOVE# }" ] && su -c "rpm -e $REMOVE"
Once you've done that, upgrade smart-beta to smart:
smart update && smart install smart
And finally, install additional subpackages as you wish, e.g.:
smart update --yes
smart install smart-{gui,addons,ksmarttray}

I am new to SMART and had just installed SMART, downloaded from GURU.

However, I got the following error message when updating:

Any idea what went wrong?
