View Full Version : Problem with update and package installation

1st October 2009, 05:49 PM
I am using Fedora 11 64-bit. The problem is, when I start to install any updates or new packages, the system return the following error:

No package cache is available.
The package list needs to be rebuilt.
This should have been done by the backend automatically.
More details:
Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again.

Please help me with this problem. I am completely new to linux, meaning I have never, ever, used a linux based system. I have recently accustomed to myself with only the basic commands (ls, yum, help, g++ etc.)

P.S. I just installed Fedora and I LOVE it.

The sticky post in this forum has gave me some idea about the described error!
But still, the main problem is that when I check resolv.conf file in the cat directory, it shows me that my DNS settings aren't correct. Any solution to this problem?
