I've had same problem on two rawhide machines, one last successfully
updated sep 19, one sep 20.

I've had to BOTH uncomment 'baseurl=' and comment out 'mirrorlist=',
then `yum clean metadata; yum update` to get an update, and floods
updates came in.

Since it was on two machines, I don't think it was purely cockpit
error on my part, but you never know.

I'm bleating here (fedora-test-list) because I don't know where to
else to bleat, and it has been mentionted here recently...
