Hi Joachim, Peter is right, the mirror that you used was not up-to-date.

You should consider using a baseurl= insted of mirrorlist= in your
repositories. You are from Germany, so you could use
http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/fedora/linux/releases. Look in
/etc/yum.repos.d and you'll figure it out.

Hope it helped,
Sincerely,  Bazy
