yum problems


Every time I try to download anything useing yum, I always get the same message saying that it can not use the mirrors. It always looks the same for updates as well.

root@localhost.localdomain[~]# yum install wine
Setting up Install Process
Setting up Repos
livna 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: updates
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

If there is anything you can do to help it would be greatly appericated. I am running Fedora 6 if that helps at all.

Thank you again,
alexm21

The repos probably doesn't exist any more since FC6 is out of life. You will either have to find some replacement repos (I don't fancy your chances) do without updates (not a good idea) or upgrade to a newer distro.

You're welcome. Sorry it wasn't a more positive response.
