Unable to Move Fink Directory Error when trying to Self Update

Fink is a great program that makes installing open source applications easy in OS X. One day when running self update in fink I got an error that said the process was unable to move the Fink directory. To fix this error you need to remove the old fink directory and its associated temporary file:

sudo rm -R /sw/fink.old
sudo rm fink.tmp
