yum update ran silently in to the error:
$ sudo yum update -y Geladene Plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit Fehler: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try againThat didn't tell me a lot about the error, also a yum clean metadata didn't help.
After a bit of googling I stumbled across the URLGRABBER_DEBUG variable which tells yum to debug all URL fetching stuff, this lead me to the error:
$ sudo URLGRABBER_DEBUG=1 yum update -y Geladene Plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit ... Could not get metalink https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink? repo=fedora-debug-16&arch=x86_64 error was 14: Peer cert cannot be verified or peer cert invalid Fehler: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try againIt was discovered last year that such errors are not passed to the user, but it might be a good idea to fix this.
To get around the error you can temporarily disable the verification of hosts using yum's setopt switch:
$ sudo yum update --setopt=sslverify=false
This is from a broken NSS update. The certificates for mirrors.fedoraproject.org are valid and verifiable vs the normal set of Certificate Authorities.ReplyDelete
What is the fix for this please do you know other than the temporary one you outlined?ReplyDelete
jod, adamw desribes the origin of the problem and a solution.ReplyDelete
In a vast sense of cosmic irony, this got me around a current edit-node problem, and I didn't even notice your name at the bottom until I was finished.ReplyDelete
