Fedora 21 upgrade and Intellij IDEA issue

I am using Intellij IDE tool for python and I am very happy with it, it is free and works great ( there is also <wingware but you will need to pay license if you want to use it ). Anyway I am happy with Intellij. Recently after Fedora 20 -> Fedora 21 upgrade I had issue where it was not able to start Intellij IDE afterwards.

The error message it reported was
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=350m; support was removed in 8.0
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.25-4.b18.fc21.x86_64/jre/lib/tzdb.dat (No such file or directory)

At specified location it was present tzdb.dat file, but pointing to an empty

# pwd; ls -l | grep tzdb
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.25-4.b18.fc21.x86_64/jre/lib
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 30 Nov 10 13:42 tzdb.dat -> /usr/share/javazi-1.8/tzdb.dat

It comes out that with latest Fedora 21 update package tzdata-java

# rpm -qf javazi-1.8
tzdata-java-2014j-1.fc21.noarch

#yum update tzdata-java

was not updated properly. Reinstalling this package fixed above issue, I know that Fedora 21 will be mass used soon – once released and hopefully this can save some of you some time
