Fedora Can't Install Upgrades

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but...well, I just installed Fedora after using Ubuntu for a while, and everything has been going good, except for installing upgrades. When I open the Update Manager, it says there is 399 updates. When I click install, after about ten seconds this pops up:

Code:
An internal system error has occured

A problem we were not expected has occured. 
Please report this bug in your distribution bugtracker wth the error description.

More details:
Error Type: <class 'yum.Errors.RepoError'>
Error Value: Error getting repository data for installed, repository not found
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3125, in <module>
    main()
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3122, in main
    backend.dispatcher(sys.argv[1:])
  File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 710, in dispatcher
    self.dispatch_command(args[0], args[1:])
  File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 657, in dispatch_command
    self.update_packages(only_trusted, package_ids)
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1948, in update_packages
    signed = self._is_package_repo_signed(pkg)
  File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1437, in _is_package_repo_signed
    repo = self.yumbase.repos.getRepo(pkg.repoid)
  File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/repos.py, line 121, in getRepo
    'Error getting repository data for $s, repository not found' $ (repoid)
I have no idea what that means, or how to fix it. Help?

Okay, thanks.

I have two other questions now: one, how do I ugprade to Firefox 3.6, and two, does Fedora have a software center or anything similar? I can't find one in the menu....

There is add / remove packages in the menu. For non Fedora things like codecs and proprietary drivers etc you need RPMFusion. See the installation guide in my signature.

There is a thread on Firefox too, see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=239023

I remember the first time I installed FC12 I had the same thing: hundreds of pending updates after it all installed. And my attempt to update generated errors.

For other reasons, I had to reinstall FC12. When I did, I made sure I checked the other repo boxes available during the installation (everything except the "test" repo) and then after the smooth install, there were very few updates (less than 10) and I got no subsequent update errors.
