have you tried running ?

yum clean all

to clean the cache, maybe that's going to help.

I am having the same problem on a CentOS 6.6 system. I have tried the above. No help.
Here's my scenario:
Quote:
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel...6-8.noarch.rpm
yum -y install epel-release
sudo rpm -Uvh epel-release-6*.rpm
yum -y install filezilla
and I get this error on the "yum install filezilla":

Could not parse metalink https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/met... error was No repomd file
Error: File /var/cache/yum/s390x/6/epel/metalink.xml does not exist
The above line seems to be the major problem and the file "/etc/yum/pluginconf.d " is empty.

Any other ideas? PLEASE!!

this thread is about Fedora 9 from 2009 ( 6 years ago)
if you are using fedora 9 then you have a problem

that is not a yum problem

centos 6.6 is UNSUPPORTED

there are NO updates
no programs
and the repos that have the OLD and never to be updated rpms are being removed from the internet
the 6.6 repos moved to the HISTORICAL archive "the Vault"


upgrade to the ONLY supported version in the 6 series
CentOS 6.7

depending on HOW you set up your install a normal update will upgrade
OR
you will have to download the 6.7 repo first
Code:
 http://mirror.rackspace.com/CentOS/6.7/os/x86_64/Packages/centos-release-6-7.el6.centos.12.3.x86_64.rpm
------install it then -----
yum upgrade
OR
you will have to manually tell yum to use the 6.7 files and upgrade
Code:
yum --releasever=6.7 upgrade

as to installing software repos
please read the centos wiki
https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRe...s/Repositories

there is and never WAS a need to use wget AND rpm AND yum
this was the ONLY thing you needed to do
AFTER YOU UPGRADE TO CENT 6.7 !!!
Code:
su -
yum install epel-release

I apologize for a couple of errors:
1. I had searched for entries regarding my filezilla problem and found this forum, not realizing it was for the outdated Fedora 9.
2. Our IBM mainframe-Linux system is using CentOS 6.6. I don't know if there is an upgrade available for it. I am trying to match it on a PC which IS running 6.7. I have contacted my I.T. group to check this out.

Thank you for your very thorough posting on how to upgrade. I will have to see if it is possible on our systems.
