Getting updates through YUM


Hi all,

I've installed Fedora 9. I updated it through fedora.repo, fedora-updates.repo, livna.repo and freshrpms.repo. Finally, around 1.4+ GB got downloaded and it got updated with some errors. But later when I ran
yum -y install yumex OR yum -y update mplayer, none of 'em seem to work. It says no package.
I'm still not able to get the players like movie player, xine etc play. Only success was in VLC. I even couldnt install xmms player.

What could be the possible problem?

Thanks in advance!
Prashant.

#man yum
#su
#yum update
#yum upgrade

Install the smart package manager

Is your rpm database corrupt?

you may need to rebuild it

I believe there are new repos you need due to a compromized key several months ago. I cant remember the details, but it might be something like fedora-newkey.repo and fedora-newkey-updates.repo

Update of audio plugins not happening.

Hi,

Thank you.
I tried all that. But it says:
[root@prashant yum.repos.d]# rpm -Uvh /home/venus/Download/fedora-release-9-5.transition.noarch.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package fedora-release-9-5.transition.noarch is already installed
[root@prashant yum.repos.d]# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-8-and-9

[root@prashant yum.repos.d]# yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit

I think my contents of fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo will help you to crack the problem:
