yum suddenly stopped working


Yum was working then started complaining about a parsing error with a <. I rebooted and now get this:

[root@ECEVeteran ~]# yum check-update

Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from freshrpms: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.


I tried googling it and only found someone complaining it had happened to them. Any ideas?

Thanks!

It means that one of the mirrors in your /etc/yum.conf is not accessible. In this case its the freshrpms mirror. There has been a problem with the freshrpms apt and yum mirror in the last week or so. You may want to configure an alternative site. There is a list of mirrors somewhere on the freshrpms website.

OIC, much simpler than I thought. I had redone the checksum and everything. I'll take care of this tomorrow. Thanks!

I changed the .conf to just look at the mirror list. After about three mirrors with the same problem it finally found a good one.
