    [SOLVED] Problem of Removing Sofware

    Dear All,
    I installed openoffice3 from the rpm files. It was successful and now I want to get rid of the old version 2.3. I clicked the Application at the launcher bar and choose the menu Add/Remove Software. I did this several times before at other machines for other packages. It is failed and gave the following message.
    Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: livna. Please verify its path and try again
    I was googling and found that we need to edit the file /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
    This was not successful either. Any clue?

    There is no need to edit fedora.repo file because problem is with Livna repo only.
    Execute this in Terminal
    su -
    yum clean all
    In case it doesn't work, disable Livna repository. Set enabled=1 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo file Or post the contents of livna.repo file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thanks for the prompt response. I de-activated the livna.repo by editing the file /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo
    It is now OK!
    Thank you.
