Can you reach http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...ata/repomd.xml with curl, wget, telnet, links or any other browser installed? If not, is your network connection working properly (as in other sites being reachable) or does it work if you stop the iptables service (as in excessively restrictive rules)?

Since you can post a reply I gather your network and firewall settings are OK.

Open a terminal window then type "links http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/updates/12/i386/repodata/repomd.xml" or "firefox http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/updates/12/i386/repodata/repomd.xml" or "curl -sS http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/updates/12/i386/repodata/repomd.xml". If there is any error output don't reply "it ain't working" but please post the exact text.

For what it is worth you should not need to be "root" when executing 'links'...

...this is not a 'links' type of error but a PackageKit one (at least according to ticket 527390). Try posting exact output of '/usr/bin/yum -v check-update 2>&1 | grep -v ^Excl;' and 'wget -v http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...pomd.xml'?
