Re: FC3 : help, i broke my yum.

I've ended up with a yum problem on a FC3 machine and am curious if there is a way to fix it.

1) I've used rsync to create a local repository on my filesystem. This seems fine. This is in preparation for lan-based updates.

2) Earlier in the week, before the rsync, I was running out of drive space, and in a hurry, I deleted /var/cache/yum.


5) Running "yum update" again took a little while, but it ran. However, the final line of output is :

 No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

...which I don't think is correct, since I can see newer packages in the rsync repo (and the /var/log/yum.log shows the last update was June 8th.)

"yum install" is working properly, just no updates.

Changing the baseurl's to http://some-net-repo yields the same result; install of a package is okay, but no update/obsoletions are detected.

Any ideas on how to correct this? Yum does not seem to be able to detect the presence of the newer packages anymore.


Have you tried

# yum check-update

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
