Hi there,

I have seen this error before. I found that I have configured a wrong route in my linux system and that is the reason I was getting this error. Check routing table on your system. You can check it using the following command:

route

If you think that there is a route which is not correct, just delete that route. If you don't know how to do that then paste your routing table here or type "man route" without quotes at console to get information on how to delete a route

Also check if you have got your system's host name configured in /etc/hosts.

Have a look at my posting in this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ration-881907/

If this does not work let us know how you are setting up repository are you using online repo or you have created your own repo. Paste the repo configuration files here.

well that mirror works
h??p://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/14/Everything/i386/os/Packages

and you start with a python error
Question
Did you by chance install a DIFFERENT version of python ,than the one fedora has in the fedora repo ?
if yes that is the cause
if not then


are you behind a router
ff can auto setup for it but sometimes not yum


but the very first thing i do for any ( almost any) um error is to clear the cache
Code:
su -
yum clean all
rpm --rebuilddb
yum update
