try typing in the konsole/terminal "urpmq --list-media" (without the quotes) and see if your sources are listed there. (q = query)

If so, you can "urpmi.update -a" (without the quotes) to update all media in the list or "urpmi.update nameOfSource", to update your "nameOfSource" (like main, main-updates, etc)

If none of that works, you may as well re-visit easy-urpmi and setup again.

Hope this helped, Glenn
