Note, you do not remove the entire line, you just remove nisplus.

I had one computer that had this problem and this is what fixed it. IT
was also very interesting. None of the other machines have nisplus
entries. I do not know why one would get it (that was only occassionally
updated) while another didn't and none of the ones that get updated
nearly every day had the problem.

Tried yum-2.5.0-5 and yum-2.4.1-3. Same result.

I can pull up http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml in firefox.

And it doesn't seem to try the mirrors.

Something changed about yum configuration I've missed?

Any  one else seing this?
