Re: update error

yea, there was a bug in a version of yum presto that made it into the repo.

try this..

Code:
yum --disableplugin=presto update
That should update your yum presto plugin to the fixed version

Re: update error

I'm not aware about the Presto bug. What version of Fedora does it affect?

Re: update error

It was in Fedora 17. (which I assumed the OP is running since this is the F17 forum )

Re: update error

Glad you have it working now. Should work fine for future updates without you needing to do anything, since your update should have updated the buggy yum presto plugin.
