Security updates - Can't connect to server
Hello - I'd be grateful for some help with this:
I decided to do a security update for my LE 2005 distro, but can't connect to any Mandriva mirrors for love nor money! I've read all the usual stuff, and at first I thought my firewall settings were to blame, so I made sure ftp access was enabled in my firewall.
I've used easy urpmi over and over, but I repeatedly get this error - apologies for the long post:
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.Linux Format DVD 67 (cdrom1).cz]
retrieving source hdlist (or synthesis) of "updates"...
...retrieving failed: curl: (7) couldn't connect to host
retrieval of source hdlist (or synthesis) failed
no hdlist file found for medium "updates"
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.updates.cz]
problem reading synthesis file of medium "updates"
found 0 headers in cache
removing 0 obsolete headers in cache
write config file [/etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg]
unable to update medium "updates"
I must admit, I can't fix this no matter what I try. If I go into mcc and manually change things in the media manager, it still won't connect even though I have a user name and password on the Mandriva site. Any ideas? The whole thing seems broken to me.
