Why do I keep getting this, and what do I do?? The error message is Greek to me. :-{

    Must come from being a redneck – y’all never clean up.

    Try yum clean all
    *then* try it again. That’ll force a relookup of the mirrors.


  • Got it in one! I disremember just what I imagined that repo to be or do.

    Another subscriber told me exactly what to change, where, and how. I did, and Shazam! It began updating itself like a m*d b*st*rd, as we say in these here parts: a new kernel and 76 updates to installed packages. Whee!

    So then I started installing things I need (like Alpine and Pan), and that also worked — double whee! — as did scp over my LAN, to get .pinerc, .pan2, etc. Triple whee!

    Many many thanks to all!
