Please only post to one forum. The moderators are going to kick your ....

Try:-
Code:

yum clean all
Then re-attempt your update.

Can you show us the content of your "/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo" file?

Were the Fedora mirrors moved as a result of the Debian key fiasco? That may be the root cause.

When did you last use yum on this system?

this is the output :

This is what mine looks like. Try replacing yours with this (rename existing, create new, yada yada...).
Code:

[fedora]

Can you get anything on the net?

What happens if you put "http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-9&arch=i386" into your browser? You should get a mirror list (at least it works for me).

sonyerricsonk750i 05-06-2009 12:58 AM

in browser i got this list

# repo = fedora-9 arch = i386 country = RU country = JP country = HK country = MY country = CY country = KR country = SG country = TW country = TR country = TH

then why its not working while yum update or i cant use pidgin or i can install any?

As an experiment, for [fedora], try commenting out the mirrorlist line and uncomment the baseurl line. Only try it for this one in the first instance (since the others are enabled anyway).
