Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: fedora - not a DNS problem

I've just installed Fedora 18. I was previously running Fedora 16, and I've kept my home partition. The only thing I've done since installing is install a handful of gnome shell extensions.

When I try to use yum I get the following error:

Quote:
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: fedora/18/x86_64. Please verify its path and try again

I've read the stickied thread. I can load mirrors/download in firefox fine so it does not appear to be a DNS issue. They both respond to ping. If I switch from "mirrorlist" and "baseurl" in fedora.repo I get the following error instead:

Quote:
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#7 - "Couldn't connect"

My network/proxy settings are all fine.

Obviously I've Googled the problem, but everything I find seems to either point me directly to stickied thread about DNS or relates specifically to rpmfusion repos.


Hopefully someone can help???

Thanks in advance....

Well that's a joke...






Added "export HTTPS_PROXY=[proxyserver]".

Now everything works. I had overlooked this as an option since changing from "https" to "http" in the repo did not fix anything.


Thanks anyway!
