yum not updating


Hi,

I have this problem since over a month now. Whenever I run the command " yum --skip-broken update", the yum command exits showing "no packages marked for update".

I have tried a few ways to get this to work. I have tried to remove the all the folders in /etc/yum.repos.d and then reinstall the rpms from rpmfusion, but it didnt work. Then I tried to edit the .repo files but changing the enabled=0 to enabled=1, but it didnt work.

Please tell me a way to get this working. I cannot even install new packages.

Thanks. I use fedora 13.

Whether you had mentioned the path in /etc/yum.repos.d/rhn folder where your rpm files are being stored & then run "yum update all" command

Thanks

If you have removed anything from yum.repos.d then you have broken yum in that it has nowhere to look for updates.
What files are present now in /etc/yum.repos.d ?
(there are no folders in yum.repos.d in F13)

If you haven't updated correctly for a long time, then don't use skip-broken.

I've attached the two main default repos for fedora. Rename them from .txt to .repo and place them in /etc/yum.repos.d then run yum update.
Attached Files
File Type: txt fedora.txt (1.1 KB, 4 views)
File Type: txt fedora-updates.txt (1.1 KB, 2 views)
