FC5 and yum


I just did a recent install of Fedora Core 5 and am trying to run yum update so that I may update my packages. Each time I run yum update I receive the following output:

yum update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
jpackage-generic [1/7]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: jpackage-generic
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: jpackage-generic

yum check-update returns the same thing. I have downloaded and installed the jpackage rpm. Thoughts on what might be causing this problem and how to fix it? thanks.

check the /etc/yum.repos.d/jpackage....repo
most likely the baseurl line is commented or missing
uncomment or add the baseurl line to remove the error
