Fedora 19 Update FAILED


I tried updating Fedora a few min's ago and it failed.

I tried yum clean packages I also tried yum clean metadat and...yum clean all

Currently the terminal is returing this:

Code:
[redcat@localhost ~]$ su
Password: 
[root@localhost redcat]# yum update
Loaded plugins: langpacks
No packages marked for update
[root@localhost redcat]#
I've never seen this before.
How can I fix this?

Clear your mirrors file and try again?

Don't know how to clear my mirrors file:unSpawn-
Use yum to clear it?

The closest thing I found was the mirrors https that should be in the repo file.

Bit overkill but 'yum clean all' should do.

The "Metadata file does not match checksum" means YUM detected a problem with that repo and skipped it.
"No packages marked for update" means there's no packages to update:
Code:
 ~]# yum -d0 update
 ~]#
...doesn't necessarily mean it's an error.
*The "Warning: group %{something} does not exist." error is interesting though. Haven't encountered that one myself before.

That error is odd-

I haven't added this to my yum.conf file (in my case may not be the best thing) but I did find where one Fedora Forum Member added this to his /etc/yum.conf file and it helped-

Code:
http_caching=packages

Thanks for helping me unSpawn!

If you 'yum-config-manager | grep http_c' then you'll see the default is "http_caching = all", wouldn't hurt to try as you can always change it back.

I tried http_caching=all in nano and ran another update.
All is well and my Fedora machine is ok now!

Thanks unSpawn.
It's always nice to have good help!
