I had the same problem. Are you trying to get all and every one of the updates at one time? What I did was just select the ones I wanted and took them one at a time rather than try a whole bunch together. Worked OK for me that way.

Cheers

Hi!

I had same problem, but then I discovered the 'yum' command. With the 'yum' command you can make all the upgrades that you want - in one command and eventually downloaderrors doesnt affect you as yum re-downloads the broken rpm

try (as root):
yum upgrade

after a while (depends on your connection, machine and how many packages you have to upgrade) you have to answer with an 'y'

Hope this helps you!

to be sure, start the command when you go to bed, then it might be ready when you come home from school.

GL and have fun

_RA_: The redhat site is dead slow, unless you are a paying customer. You need to redirect up2date to a fedora mirror site from this list:

http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html

First, find a site that downloads at an acceptable speed. Not all mirrors were created equally in this respect, so shop around for one. Next, look in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources and you will find two uncommented lines:

yum fedora-core-1 http://fedora......
yum updates-released http://fedora...

Put the http://fedora... addresses into your web browser and you will be redirected to redhat locations. Then look at the mirror site and find the same locations. Note that the mirrors are usually organized differently than the redhat site. Now, substitute the mirror addresses for the http://fedora... addresses.

Run up2date again and everything should go quickly.
