    Question Stopped receiving updates


    I have two machines running Fedora 7.
    When starting either machine I almost always got notification of updates being available, but since mid-June I've not received any.
    The package manager tells me there are no updates available, but going on past experience, this seems strange. Can anyone advise please?

    Fedora 7 is no longer supported by the Fedora Project. Its Life Cycle ended on 13-06-2008. Either upgrade it to Fedora 9 or install CentOS for long time support.
    CentOS is RedHat based only and I prefer it over Fedora for production machines. Fedora is just a test rat of RedHat.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
