What is the output of 'yum repolist' ?
What is the content of the '.repo' file in '/etc/yum.repos.d' that contains the repository information for the DVD?
Can you try 'yum --noplugins update' ?

that is odd

most want that off if somehow it is on after the install ,because the software on the dvd is old

yum repolist
 
i tried yum repolist and yum-no plugins update i got an output like this

Loading "priorities" plugin
Options Error: Error parsing 'baseurl = file://media/Fedora 8 i386 DVD': URL must be http, ftp, file or https not ""

/etc/yum.repos.d/Fedora-install-media.repo is like this


InstallMedia]
name = Fedora 8
mediaid=1194015397.199387
metadata_expire=-1
gpgcheck = 0
cost=500
baseurl = baseurl = file://media/Fedora 8 i386 DVD

delete /etc/yum.repos.d/Fedora-install-media.repo
and install lvina repo
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...ra-f8.html#yum
but do not use " sudo " unless you have ALREADY set it up -- use " su - "
example:
Code:

su -
( your root password when asked)
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna

so yum repolist did NOT give you a list of turned on repo's
Code:

su -
yum repolist

No answers here nor in the net
 
Hi
I have exactly the same problem, i.e.
[root@localhost etc]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Options Error: Error parsing 'file:///media/Fedora 11 i386 DVD': URL must be http, ftp, file or https not ""

The reason why I would like to add a repo from a DVD (as somebody above questioned it is odd) is my recent upgrade to Fedora 11. I see no reason why to download everything from the net if many RPMs are on DVD already. Especially that I am limited with monthly download allowance (mobile broadband).

what is on the dvd is OLD and UNSTABLE . The sound is broken and the Updates will fix that .there was also a bug in the wireless that was fixed . there is a kernel update that FIXES a KNOWN exploit .

i have already had over 300 updates to fix things from the dvd .

if you do not want UPDATES to fix things on the "stable" and i put that in quotes because fedora is a TESTING DESTRO AND NOT EVERYTHING WILL WORK OUT OF THE BOX


install CentOS 5.3 or BUY a license for RHEL 5.3 .

If you do not want to install updates then do not use Fedora . With fedora you will need to reinstall every 6 months when a new version comes out. then install approx. 1 to 5 gig's of updates.

I know this is an old post but I just had the same issue with Oracle enterprise linux so in case anyone has the problem.

I ran this
Code:

ls /etc/yum.repos.d
Found a bad repo and deleted it
Code:

ls /etc/yum.repos.d
