yum update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again

I also tried to reinstall the repositories from http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration, but the links RPM Fusion free for Fedora 12, 13 and 14 and RPM Fusion nonfree for Fedora 12, 13 and 14 don't work.

Thank you for your support!

Hello,

I found what the problem was. One link from /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo was wrong.Probably i made this error while i was trying to solve another problem. So the problem is solved.

Thank you!

Hi everyone,

Finally I was able to solve this problem. See my thread in Installation Help entitled:

"FC14: Pls. help me install yumex".

Hope this helps.

I stumbled on the same one: Had to set the environment variables
Code:
export http_proxy=http://host:port
export https_proxy=http://host:port
or, if your proxy requires authentication,
Code:
export http_proxy=http://username:password@host:port
export https_proxy=http://username:password@host:port
as root before running yum to make it work

P.S. See also post #20 in this very same thread by Panoz
