Urpmi package installs are failing


Hello:

I'm pretty much a newbie but I'm managing.

There are a number of packages I've tried to download in the past 2 weeks and have been having trouble with both the GUI installer and urpmi. Everything is pretty much giving me the same error as below. I have updated my urpmi database, so that didn't help. The packages I've tried to install have been

dos2unix, unix2dos, libpopt-devel, and gmt-4.0-2mdk

The specific output is as follows. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks


[root@h80ad4be1 iiibbb]# urpmi gmt-4.0-2mdk
To satisfy dependencies, the following 3 packages are going to be installed (117 MB):
gmt-4.0-2mdk.i586
gmt-data-4.0-2mdk.i586
libgmt-4.0-2mdk.i586
Is this OK? (Y/n) y

ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...ficial/current /i586//media/contrib/release/gmt-4.0-2mdk.i586.rpm
ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...-2mdk.i586.rpm
ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...-2mdk.i586.rpm
...retrieving failed: wget failed: exited with 1 or signal 0

Installation failed, some files are missing:
ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...-2mdk.i586.rpm
ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...-2mdk.i586.rpm
ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...-2mdk.i586.rpm
You may want to update your urpmi database
[root@h80ad4be1 iiibbb]#


Also... I just tried updating my urpmi database again and that doesn't seem to go through as well.


[root@h80ad4be1 iiibbb]# urpmi.update -a

I'm not having any internet troubles... I'm writing this from my mandriva partition right now.

If you are having such problems, then I think you need to delete the mirrors you are currently using and try others e.g.
Code:
#urpmi.removemedia -a
After that go to easyurpmi and follow the instructions to setup the main, contrib, updates and plf repos.

That is interesting. I had the same problem in the last few days and had to clear and add the sources again....

I see someone beat me to the punch, but the easy urpmi thing does the trick.

Takes about 45 minutes.


Thanks everyone.
