FC3 -> FC4 problem


I ran a FC3 that worked for a long time, and was a RH9 in the beginning.
Now I installed fedora-release-4-2.noarch.rpm and tried to run yum update.
But yum keeps looking for files that don't even exist on the Fedora mainservers.
I mean this error:
Code:
Server: Fedora Core 4 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 4 - i386 - Released Updates
retrygrab() failed for:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...rs/header.info
  Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...rs/header.info
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
The headers directory doesn't exist on any server... What can I do?

As I mentioned in the first post, I downloaded fedora-release-4-2.noarch.rpm from the fedora website and installed it with "rpm -Uvh <rpm>".


Solution to this problem in this thread: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...983#post282983

upgrade yum

After installing the release rpm, you must upgrade yum: yum -y upgrade yum
Happy computing,
Kurt
