I meant all the output you get after running "yum update".

Take a look here.
Seems like you haven't setup your Yum repos properly.

It could be a problem with your ISP, so contact them and have a word with them.

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo

I get the same thing: it was once working, magic
happened and now it does not. I've spent 30 minutes
trying to run down the cause and fix. I guess I see
the cause now, but the fix is not apparent here.
I keep digging......

Solution

Here's the fix that worked for me...had to change the location that it wanted to look in...the default repos in a Fedora Core 4 install did not work.

Add http: to the url below:

aaltonen.us/archive/2004/11/13/yum-in-fedora-core-3

It looks like Fedora core 6 was just released and fedora.redhat.com is having trouble with bandwidth: "We are working hard to bring fedora.redhat.com back up to its fully operational state".

Thumbs down I had it fixed, but it has become unfixed

Well, I had it fixed, but it has become unfixed so I am back trying to re-learn whatever it was I found out before to get it working again. Very, very, very tiresome.

# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
updates-released [1/9]
flash [2/9]
extras [3/9]
core [4/9]
jpackage-fedora [5/9]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: jpackage-fedora
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: jpackage-fedora

The answer is: repositories bounce up and down and become unavailable for various reasons. Rather than just allow you to skip unavailable repositories, yum dies this way leaving you to think that no repositories were found. Not so at all. Since there is no option for skipping repositories, you just have to know that you have to edit the yum configuration data to skip the unavailable stuff. -- DON'T FORGET TO PUT IT ALL BACK THOUGH!! (Unless it is gone for good. I don't (yet?) know how to find that out.)
