So which is it -- Fedora 11 or Fedora 8? Is this conversation about two machines or one? Or two installations on one machine?

And why would "no packages marked for update" constitute an error? That is normally regarded as a "good thing" (TM). As to Fedora 8, that is an obvious response from Yum, since that version has been dead for a long time now.

So ... please, more information.

It could mean no updates are available.

Check your network connection and configuration -- and consider upgrading the Fedora 8 system -- it's out of date.

Ordinarily a report that there are no upgrades available is not regarded as an emergency.
