Before throwing out all, try "yum clean metadata".  Usually, that's all
that's needed to deal with an out-of-whack repo.

"yum clean all" throws away all your downloaded and cached packages,
which are probably fine, and you'll have to download them again if you
got part way through doing an update, wasting your bandwidth and the
repos.

This continual dumb advice of telling people to fix everything with a
blind "yum clean all" is on a par with the dumb Windows advice of format
and reinstall to fix every minor problem that you don't understand.
