Angry Software Updater doesn't work after install from FTP

I successfully installed FC5 from FTP. But when I click on the Software Updater or the Package Manager on the menu, both just sit and spin, indicating they are retrieving software information. If I had done the install from CD, this wouldn't be a problem. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix it?

Hi Chad,

Both Pirut and Pup are based on yum so I would open a terminal and run

# yum update

and see where it is hanging. You may need to update the .repo files which hold the information on where to obtain updates although it seems unlikely.
