FC10 updates impossible by yum


Hi,
I cannot update FC10 with yum now (no packets to be updated). Is it possible to get new rpm packets from somewhere (Totem 2.24.3 and plugins - internet video is dead, Shockwave Flash - up to date, Firefox v.12.0), or is it better to install higher version of Fedora? Which one?
Kindest regards and many thanks,
Slawan

fedora changes VERY FAST . It is a R and D distro that changes very much every 6 months with each new release

fedora 10 hit it's END OF LIFE on "2009-12-18"
so there have been NO security fixes since then


fedora 17 is the current and any one version ONLY has 13 months of support
so 17 will die ( hit it's END OF LIFE in 13 months )

there will never be any updates after that

FC10 updates impossible by yum

Thanks to all of you. So I'll install FC17 as you suggest. I expect troubles with executing the RAID1 utility or ADSL modem as usual, but it will take me much less time than the other solutions, I hope.
Many thanks, Regards
Slawan

It has been a couple of days. I'm wondering how your new installation has been going?
