Unhappy Another newbie F12 install issue

I have tried everything I can think of to get through this on my own but have come to a grinding halt.

I had F11 which was working OK'ish on my laptop and decided to upgrade to F12 when it was available. This was not too successful and I started getting problem with updates to the extent that I could not install any as I got errors which stopped the updates.

Bit the bullet and backed up all the data then wiped the disk and started from a clean downloaded DVD of the full F12.

Still getting problems running the updates (output below) and trying to install/run VirtualBox is also failing (also below)
The build and source mentioned show as broken links, where do I go next?


Update errors -
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>

'Error getting repository data for $s, repository not found' $ (repoid)


VirtualBox install log error

PackageKit on a new F12 install has issues. Use yum to get updated. Open a terminal:
Code:
su -c 'yum update'

worked for me. Is that essentially the same thing?
