Software update error


Following a power failure during an update procedure, I rebooted my fc8 system and now it won't do updates. I get the following error:-

Your system is currently not receiving software updates. Please check your network connection and/or set up software updates

My network connection seems fine as I can use the internet directly from that machine or connect to the mail and webservers hosted on that machine from a remote pc.

I have tried manually to run software updater but it will not connect.

Any suggestions please

Many Thanks

Sorry, a little premature there, it just took quite a while for it to complete but has now successfully completed.

Thanks for your help
