    Problem in yum commands


    Hi.
    Whenever I give any yum command, i get the following errors:
    Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again

    My yum.conf file looks like this:
    [main]
    cachedir=/var/cache/yum
    keepcache=0
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    exactarch=1
    obsoletes=1
    gpgcheck=1
    plugins=1
    metadata_expire=1800
    installonly_limit=2
    reposdir=/etc/yum.repos.d

    # PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
    # in /etc/yum.repos.d
    proxy=http://rakshaka.wipro.com:8080/
    proxy_username=trtaa
    proxy_password=**********
    export http_proxy=http://trtaa:March_2008@10.111.16.139:8080

    you're looking in the wrong place. in this directory:

    /etc/yum.repos.d/

    you will find various .repo files. likely one is called fedora.repo. This has the mistake in it.

    Check the contents of /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo file. Remove # sign before first baseurl line.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
