Update Fedora 12 Alpha fails: python-simplejson "No more mirrors to try"


I've had Fedora 12 alpha installed in Virtualbox for a couple of weeks now but have never been able to update its packages. Updater fails on python-simplejson' with the error message: "256: No more mirrors to try".

I've tried it with #yum check-update and #yum install python-simplejson and get the same error. Checking the repositories in Yum > System > Software sources, the Fedora-Rawhide and Fedora 12-Alpha repositories are enabled. In desperation, I enabled all the Fedora 11.91 repositories, refreshed, and tried yum on the CLI again, with the same result.

Is there a way to get this one little 119 kb package so I can try the update again? I'm not familiar with Fedora.

In faith, Dave

Hi,

I assume that the virtual F12 machine does have networking, and its just yum that has a problem?

Try running the following first:

Code:
yum clean all
then

Code:
yum -v  -d 10 --noplugins upgrade
Also post the output off:

Code:
yum repolist
I have F12 running in a virtual machine and python-simplejson is installed, updates run without any problems.

# rpm -qa python-simplejson
python-simplejson-2.0.9-3.fc12.i686

Hello All

Could you let us know if your virtualization server provide networking to your eth0 interface into the virtual image?

Could you please provide information about the virtualization server are you using?

In this issue could be affecting different items like, do the VS have internet access?, are you configuring the V Images as intranet, local host, other options???

Please send me more information to help you about your issue, best regards

Jhon
