Yum Checksum For Updates Fails

CentOS 5 Comments

Hello, this is my first time sending to this list. I tried to found the most appropriate place to ask my question, and the most matching list was this. I hope not to be off-topic.

Today, I tried to make a yum update to my CentOS machines, and I got an error for the updates channel.

The error was: Metadata file does not match checksum

Is there an issue on this?

    If you want to reproduce the problem, try yum clean all, first

    thanks for your response, I am almost sure that I don’t use an http proxy from the OS side. I
    don’t know if it is used at the network layer.


  • When I’ve seen this error before, it was caused by a proxy that was caching metadata for too long. Have you tried using a different mirror ?

    Is there a way to update metadata manually?
