yum failure with fedora 10 upgrade


Hello everyone.
I have been using Fedora to run my Compaq nx7300 for about 2 years. First I used Fedora 7, then I recently upgraded to Fedora 10. When I try to use yum update, the program reports a HTTP 404 error: site not found. I then went to check the files in the yum.repos.d directory and found that they still contained the Fedora 7 addresses. I then changed the addresses in fedora.repo, fedora-updates-testing.repo and fedora-updates.repo and then did:
yum clean all
yum update

The yum update command now gets a little farther into the process, but still terminates:

updates-debuginfo/primary_db | 377 kB 00:00
http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
http://archive.fedoraproject.org/pub...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: updates-testing-debuginfo. Please verify its path and try again


Is there a way to load from the installation DVD the correct files for the yum.repos.d directory? I would be grateful for any suggestions.
Thanks and best wishes,
Mike

Why updates-testing? disable that

Import keys

Fedora 7 to Fedora 10 is possibly not supported...Need to check that up.

post repo data

Dear Amani thanks for the reply. How do I disable updates-testing ? I renamed the files in /etc/yum.repos.d but I still crash when the livna update is attempted.
