A problem about yum

A few days ago,i used 'yum' to update my system .but there was flicked a error on the display:cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository : updates-testing.please verify its path and try again.
I cannot find where the problem.I attempted to check up the 'yum.conf' and 'yum.repos.d' to found the problem of the error.but it's no of effect with the error.
I am a newbie so i hope a good man can show how to me where is the problem?

I'm guessing you are using Fedora and you shouldn't have "updates-testing.repo" enabled or if you do have it enabled for some reason try disabling it.

As the new release(F9 in this case) approaches release, the development and testing repos get shuffled around a lot. Essentially the older (F8) development repo is being superseded by the newer (F9) development repo.
