I had fedora 6 installed in a 64 bit machine. I upgraded that to fedora 7 recently. since then yum is not working. I connect to internet via proxy. I can accesss other services. but yum gives the error. for eg:

well squid is telling you where to go... suggests the infrastrcuture you are going through is configured this way. are you able to talk to the admins of jncproxy.jncasr.ac.in?

that squid error is down to a single mirror. is that your proxy where you work or something? if so then i meant you talk to whoever in IT is responsile for the policy on that machine.

at a wider level though, you are generally just getting timeouts. that suggests you either have no local network connection - please verify this. alternatively you are firewalled by your network infrastructure from getting where you want to go.. can you ping those domains? access the web addresses within a browser?

Apparently they dont seem to be able to help. and I tried myself and messed up everything.
I happened to install an old version of yum 2.0.7. It doesnt work. I want to uninstall it and install the latest. Now I face these problems.

Code:
[root@onsager aditya]# rpm -e yum
error: Failed dependencies:
        yum = 3.2.0-1.fc7 is needed by (installed) yum-updatesd-3.2.0-1.fc7.noarch
        yum >= 2.9.5 is needed by (installed) pirut-1.3.7-1.fc7.noarch
[root@onsager aditya]# sudo rpm -e yum
error: Failed dependencies:
        yum = 3.2.0-1.fc7 is needed by (installed) yum-updatesd-3.2.0-1.fc7.noarch
        yum >= 2.9.5 is needed by (installed) pirut-1.3.7-1.fc7.noarch
[root@onsager aditya]#
I then used rpm -e yum --nodeps. It looks like it removed a lot. Then i downloaded 3.2.8 and tried installing it. but now this is the problem.

Code:
[root@onsager yum]# ls
yum-3.2.7-1.src.rpm
[root@onsager yum]# rpm -ivh yum-3.2.7-1.src.rpm 
warning: yum-3.2.7-1.src.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 69886cc7
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
[root@onsager yum]#
what do i do?

Plz share your knowledge
