Error finding Virtualbox rpms for update

From this morning's set of updates, Yum is giving me this error:
Code:
Downloading Packages:
Setting up and reading Presto delta metadata
http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/16/x86_64/VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.12_77218_fedora16-1.x86_64.rpm: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found : http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/16/x86_64/VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.12_77218_fedora16-1.x86_64.rpm
Trying other mirror.


Error Downloading Packages:
  VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.12_77218_fedora16-1.x86_64: failure: VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.12_77218_fedora16-1.x86_64.rpm from virtualbox: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
I tried #yum clean all to no effect. Because this is persistent (I've been seeing this for 10 hours now) I'm not sure it's an issue with the mirrors either.

Has anyone else seen this?
Thanks.

Re: Error finding Virtualbox rpms for update

It doesn't appear that VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.12_77218_fedora16-1.x86_64.rpm is in the repository...

This is based on using the URL to look at the directory.

Yes, and I see user FolkertM has had the same problem.

I got Virtualbox from Autoplus. I'll investigate from where Dangermouse got it, then.
Thanks.

Re: Error finding Virtualbox rpms for update

What you have should be the official repository given in VirtualBox website - based on your post. I installed the exact package this morning. Now, there was another update

VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.12_77245_fedora16-1.x86_64
Are you still having problems?

Thanks Nonamedotc, I didn't even know they had a repo.
I went to that url and installed the .repo file, so no more manual updates for me.
