yum problem - and solution



The second time I ran "sudo yum update" after upgrading to FC-6
I got the error
        Metadata file does not match checksum
even after running "yum clean all" and "yum makecache".

So I googled for
'yum "Metadata file does not match checksum"'
and got the advice
======================================
i did this
mv /var/cache/yum/* /tmp
than i run the yum install <appz>
======================================
which did indeed do the trick.

This leaves me slightly puzzled -
(1) Why did I get this error?
and
(2) Why did "yum clean all" not solve the problem?
