Fedora Installation :: FC10 Installation Failed Due To "Cannot Retrieve Repository Metadata (repomd.xml)"?

Mar 16, 2009

I have an installation problem that I cannot resolve. The problem arises during the installation process, using the Fedora-10-i386-netinst.iso image, burnt onto CD.Immediately after setting up the network card, I am given the error "Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again". Since the installation process is text-based, I do not have the option to edit the repository list, and consequently, have to abort.This is the spec of my machine:

Pentium 166 (yes, it's very old, but it should work, no?)
132MB RAM (just about enough ram for minimilistic server)
80GB hard disk

Fedora Installation :: Can't Retrieve Repository Metadata (repomd.xml) / Fix It?

Apr 29, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12.

I am getting following error if I try to give the command yum update

Quote...

I tried all the steps in the post http://rishabhsays.wordpress.com/201...sitory-fedora/ and no success. I am behind a proxy server and got proxy related info in yum.conf file but still facing the same problem.

I even tried following commands with no success

I can connect to Internet but cannot update using yum

There seems to be a bug reported on the same issue in FEDORA13 - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=564509

Fedora :: Yum Broken Errno 14 PYCURL ERROR 7 (Cannot Retrieve Repository Metadata (repomd.xml) For Repository)

Dec 27, 2009

yum is completely broken. I cannot install or update any software. yum is always throwing:

Code: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-12&arch=x86_64 error was 14: PYCURL ERROR 7 - "" Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free. Please verify its path and try again I have tried globally to disable the gpg check as stated in other threads. I have no proxies or such in yum.conf or in my bashrc. If I manually click on the link it will resolve in firefox so I am sure it is not my net connection per se, it seems yum or curl is adding a : to the end of the url thats why it wont resolve properly.

I have done a yum clean all , which didnt really help either. reinstalling the rpmfusion repos isnt an option either as I start getting curl errors in the terminal. I am really at a loss here and am completely out of ideas as I cant install any updates or software , at first I thought the repositories were having problems with the holidays but this has been going on for 4 days now. /var/log/messages isnt showing anything either.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Error: Cannot Retrieve Repository Metadata (repomd.xml) For Repository

I recently registered a Red Hat 5 machine. It registered ok and was able to do a yum update. Now, yum update gives this error:

Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
There was an error communicating with RHN. RHN support will be disabled. Error communicating with server. The message was:

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmforge. Please verify its path and try again I can ssh into the machine, and I can open up Firefox and browse the web. I have another Red Hat 5 machine set up and working fine, and I've checked that the /etc/yum.conf, /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date, .bash_profile, and /etc/hosts files are all the same (except for hostnames and ip addresses). I'm fairly new to Red Hat, and I don't know what other configuration files to check.

Fedora Installation :: PYCURL ERROR 6 "Cannot Retrieve Repository Metadata"

Mar 2, 2010

I wanted to get some additional life out of a computer with 256MB of RAM, and discovered that FC12 was the only version of Linux I was able to install (out of the distros attempted). The installer went into text mode automatically, configuring only the root account. I used text-based tools after the first boot to configure networking, and installed a couple of additional packages with yum. Then I issued "yum update," and it retrieved and installed the available updates. That was the last time I used yum successfully, though. I obtained such error messages as "14: PYCURL ERROR 6" and "Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. verify its path and try again."

I discovered that such problems had been encountered by others, and had sometimes been solved by such methods as adding repositories to yum.conf, adding lines to /etc/hosts, adding a line to resolv.conf, tampering with fedora.repo or fedora updates.repo, or even with "yum clean all." None of these methods worked for me, however. My initial impression of Fedora is favorable, so I might like to try it even on a system where it wasn't the only available choice. Package management is essential to success with any OS, however, so I need to get past this issue.
