I have two Fedora Core 3 systems, one in the office and one at home. Yum always works very smoothly on my home system, but at work I'm frequently bugged with:
[Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksumleading to
[Errno 256] No more mirrors to tryGoogling around, this seems to be a caching issue. Various HTTP caches (on our network or between us and the backbone, I'm not sure) are caching either the metadata or the checksum file, leading to a mismatch. I've tried various suggested solutions for this, with no success so far. However, my colleague Steve Pearson suggested a fix which works in our office, since we have a SOCKS proxy available. I simply:
- installed the dante socks client rpm
- removed my
socksify yum update, or whatever yum command I need.
