Problem with repositories/yum


I don't know what is happening. It has been a few weeks (maybe a month) since I've been into my vps. I've just logged in and was going to install prince and when I typed "yum info prince" I got an error with the dries repo.

I then tried just updating everyting (yum -y update) and got the same error. Can someone please tell me why I'm getting this error and what I should check?

It didn't try any of the other mirrors. Is it possible that someone got in without me knowing?? I've got it setup to email me anytime root is accessed and I haven't gotten any emails.

Here is the error:
Code:
[root@server1 realtors]# yum -y update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.ulyssis.org/redhat/el4/en/i386/dries/RPMS/re                  podata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (101, 'Network is unreachab                  le')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: dries

Your sig says CentOS 5 but the repository indicates version 4. Try updating your repository to:

ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.ulyssis.org/redhat/el5/en/i386/dries/RPMS
