Yum is not working with Fedora core 6.

Asked By 35 points N/A Posted on -

I have Fedora core 6 on which I cannot install any type of package online with the help of Yum. It is displaying an error message.

I have employed it on all Fedora versions but the same error message pops up every time.

Any one who can help me out.

Your repos might be corrupted. If not, you can try to run a Yum clean [all] if you have not done so already. In doing so, cached packages and the old headers that yum no longer needs will be deleted. Cleaning it should help.

By the way, it seems to me that the IP address or hostname

You can also check if you are able to access the base URL for repo directly.

Look it up in the corresponding repo file (etc/yum.repos.d/fedora..) Look for the base URL and see if you can ping it.
