Security updates not downloading Fedora 17


Good day, I am using Fedora 17 on a sdhc card in a laptop, and it goes well, except for security update downloads. And when I was using Fedora 16, it gave trouble to find and download software.

I would appreciate advice on getting it going.

please provide us the output from a "yum update" or such like. We need useful information if we're going to help you.

Is it possible that you have a problem because you're trying to do your download/update at the same time that the repositories are being updated? If you're getting "check sums do not match" messages, that's the probable cause. (When a repository is updated, the first thing updated is the check sum file. That logically disables any altered file until its update is complete.)
