Yum Fails Error Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo
 
I have just changed my internet ISP to try to save money i have now found though that when i try to update my systems which were working o.k before via YUM i get the following error:-

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released


Does anyone why this error would be displayed as i can surf the web fine or could it be that my new ISP is blocking the port which yum uses and if so what port does yum use?

I am very new to Linux so any help would greatly be appaciated.

thanks

Peter:)

Well, what url or repository is it using? Can you reach that thru your ISP's DNS servers? Try pinging, wget or a dig against them. If they can't resolve the servers, try a different mirror or DNS server.

thanks i have just tried to access url from a website and i get a message stating that the site is being hit by a lot of traffic because of the release fof fedora 6 - so thats probably why i can't update my system at the moment -

thanks for your help just glad that its nothing to do with my isp
