Yum Error

Hey all, thanks for all the help so far. I am now having trouble using yum. I've done/read everything at
Whenever I use a command to download and install somthing it gives me the error
"No Match for argument: *packagenamehere*
Nothing to do"

I also replaced the default yum.config just like said. But to no avail.
Thanks in advance for any help.

It seems like you are not using the correct package names. What are you trying to install? You can check whether the package is available by doing,
#yum list | grep -i packagename
