Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.

I just did a fresh install of F14 using a Live USB. I can't do a yum update, I'm getting

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.

I've done a yum clean all and I've tried coping the .repos from another F14 system that's working fine.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried yum clean all and yum check-update? Is there a working Internet connection on this computer? What is in the file /etc/resolv.conf?

I was able to fix it by changing https in the .repo files to http

Is having this much info in my /etc/resolv.conf bad?

Code:
# Generated by NetworkManager
search 131.247.2.211

nameserver 131.247.1.1
nameserver 131.247.14.101
nameserver 131.247.100.1
# NOTE: the libc resolver may not support more than 3 nameservers.
# The nameservers listed below may not be recognized.
nameserver 131.247.3.1
nameserver 131.247.3.16

Re: Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora.

Hi,

I changed the https to http as bjrosen suggested, but this didn't help. I am using Fedora 15 behind a proxy, and managed to fix it by doing the following in the terminal

Code:
#> export http_proxy="h ttp://myproxyaddress:portnumber/"
Also adding the following to the end of /etc/yum.conf

Code:
proxy=h ttp://myproxyaddress:portnumber/
Please excuse the space in h ttp. This is my first post and the number of links is restricted for new postees, so I added the space to get this through.

Hope this helps

Hello guissemadina. Fedora 14 has long past End Of Life. That means that it is no longer officially supported by the Fedora Project. As such, there will be no updates for Fedora 14. With regard to your issues, my guess is that the yum repositories no longer work for this release, hence the yum errors. You should consider installing Fedora 18, or at the very least, Fedora 17.
