problem preupgrade f16 to f17 with google chrome


Code:
failure: repodata/filelists.xml.gz from preupgrade-google-chrome: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
and it quit

I'm not much of a linux hacker - can someone suggest an approach

1 - is this perhaps temporary - try later?

2 - uninstall chrome for the preupgrade and then install after?

3 - in the mean time there is a mess of stuff somewhere on my disk - can someone tell me where?

no big problem - I did a full disk backup just before the preupgrade and I can always just switch to the backup disk

when i run df i see that my boot partition is now 73% full - whereas it previously was perhaps 25% full - so I guess that's where much of the material downloaded went.

Personally I'd go for fixing the other issue (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...16-4175440440/) first. One problem a day and such...
