yum in fc4 error - metadata file does not match
 
I used to be unable to use yum due to "connection timed out" errors, until today when I found out how to add the "timeout=" line in yum.conf.

Now, I don't get "timed out" errors, instead I get this:

Code:

yum check-update

It does this for a long while before finally saying "no more mirrors to try".

Could someone tell me what is wrong here? I'm completely lost.

While I'm posting, I have a second question; is it wise to add repo's to yum? Everyone seems to do it but I hear a lot of people complaining about 'conflicting packages'...

never mind. a friend just introduced me to the "yum clean all" command, which fixed the problem. thanks anyway.

This should be enough
 
yum clean all
will work but it might clean up all the data about the available/downloaded packages
You can instead try
yum clean metadata
first and then if it doesn't solve the problem go for
yum clean all

Wow, they're still supporting FC4 repos?

I got into a hurry and used yum clean all before I saw the yum clean metadata but It did fix my problem. Everything else seems to be working well.

Just keep in mind that there have been no new updates(of any kind) for FC4 in over 5 years. There are tons of known vunlerabilities in such systems.
