Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml)

Hi

I just installed Fedora 12.

I am getting following error if I try to give the command yum update
Quote:
http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 5 - ""
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again
I tried all the steps in the post http://rishabhsays.wordpress.com/201...sitory-fedora/ and no success. I am behind a proxy server and got proxy related info in yum.conf file but still facing the same problem.

I even tried following commands with no success
Quote:
yum clean all
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm –rebuilddb
I can connect to internet but cannot update using yum

There seems to be a bug reported on the same issue in FEDORA13 - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=564509

Any body got a WORK THROUGH ??

Re: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml)

If your proxy is a caching proxy, you may be downloading a broken copy every time. Try using 'wget' to download the file, and see if it pulls in a valid file. You could also try browsing to the file to see if it prompts you to download it correctly.

I have a transparent proxy that I use at home that does my internet content filtering. Doesn't filter https though.

Hmm I dont think it is the problem with proxy server.

I got a FEDORA 9 machine in the same network which is downloading the updates successfully using YUM.

But this new FEDORA 12 machine is not able to download ....

Re: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml)

Proxy caching isn't a "problem", it's a "feature" . Fedora 9's updates are EOL I thought. http://mirror.xmission.com/fedora/updates/9/README

Still, try 'wget' and Firefox, make sure the file is downloading appropriately. I can browse to this file just fine:

I am not sure about wget as I haven't tried yet .. but the file is downloading properly with FIREFOX ...

Is this a problem in YUM or something else .. ?? If it is in yum I can download the yum RPM manually and install it ...
