I'm trying to upgrade from F16 to F17 using preupgrade. Preupgrade had progressed to where it had downloaded a large percentage of the F17 packages (it was in the "k's" in the alphabetical list of packages) when I inadvertantly clicked on "cancel".
I then reran preupgrade. It reran the step "download installer images". The first part of this step runs OK. I get the terminal messages:
Fetched treeinfo from http://mirror.chpc.utah.edu/pub/fedo.../os//.treeinfo
treeinfo timestamp: Tue May 22 16:58:41 2012
/boot/upgrade/vmlinuz checksum OK
/boot/upgrade/initrd.img checksum OK
"download installer images" continues and downloads several hundred MB of addtional data and then fails with the following terminal messages:

I reran preupgrade a total of three times with the same result. I then rebooted F16 and reran preupgrade two more times where it failed each time with the same result.
Any ideas on what's going wrong and how I can fix it?

I was able to get preupgrade to resume by deleting /boot/upgrade/squashfs.img. The size of my boot partition is 1.0 GB.
Apparently I was affected by:
