[Errno 256] No more mirrors to try


I have Fedora 13 in a VPS.

I cannot work with yum.

I got this error:

# yum install [anything]

[Errno 256] No more mirrors to try

# yum list

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.
Please verify its path and try again

Any ideas about how can I solve this problem?

Run the following and report back what happens:
yum clean all
yum update
