yum/up2date issue


I was using FC 3. up2date decided to stop working. no errors even from terminal. The up2date icon would consistently tell me the system was up to date. Because I heard of the connection issues with Vista and Samba I downloaded and installed FC 6 (last night). now...
When attempting to run yum, i get:
[root@xxx ~]# yum -y update
Repository core is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository updates is listed more than once in the configuration

when attempting to run up2date from terminal, i get:

How are your repositories defined? It seems that there are some duplicate entries involved.

Is "dries" a repo you defined yourself? Could you post the contents of repomd.xml please?

EDIT: Also check if repomd.xml is readable.

Thank you both for your replies. It seems that issue was resolved (at least apparently) when I removed some entries I'd added. I now have a related issue though. Yum seems to update everything except for 2 particular files that won't update because there is a common needed dependency. The problem is, According to the package manager, it's there. This is what yum gives me now (colored text is mine):

Processing Dependency: cyrus-imapd = 2.2.12-1.1.fc3 for package: cyrus-imapd-nntp
--> Processing Dependency: cyrus-imapd = 2.2.12-1.1.fc3 for package: cyrus-imapd-murder
--> Processing Dependency: libgnomecanvaspixbuf.so.1 for package: gtkhtml
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: cyrus-imapd = 2.2.12-1.1.fc3 is needed by package cyrus-imapd-murder
Error: Missing Dependency: cyrus-imapd = 2.2.12-1.1.fc3 is needed by package cyrus-imapd-nntp

So I cannot update either the cyrus-imapd-nntp nor cyrus-imapd-murder because the same thing is missing. Any thoughts?
