Metadata checksum failures on apparently all mirrors. ^C doesn't help.
Yum switches through all available mirrors. WTF? Some time later, 78
updates are available. Newbie is caught in a loop of download failures,
mirror-switching, ^C attempts, low through-put, and reacts very surprised
and disappointed about "this Linux stuff".
