yum update not working, fedora core 1
Yum isn't working and I don't understand the error message. The first time I ran yum with the command yum check-update and it returned a long list of packages that could be updated. I then rand the command yum update and I got the following error message:
. Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
. Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
. Traceback (most recent call last):
. File "/usr/bin/yum", line 60, in ?
. File "yummain.py", line 188, in main
. File "clientStuff.py", line 766, in get_package_info_from_servers
. File "clientStuff.py", line 103, in HeaderInfoNevralLoad
. ValueError: unpack list of wrong size
. [root@localhost root]#
I then tried running the update command with specific packages and kept getting the same error message. When I try and use yum check-update again it also returns the same error message.
My yum.conf file looks like this:
. name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
. name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
. #name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Unreleased Updates
* Note: http: is after each baseurl=. I had to nix it because this is my first post.
I'm running a fully installed version of Fedora Core realease 1 (Yarrow) on a PIII 600 Mhz with 128 MB Ram. The reason I'm trying to update using Yum is because up2date won't work. Red Hat Network has no channel for Fedora Core 1 being run on an i686. (I'm quite new with Linux, only bought the computer about a month ago).
