Error: requested datatype primary not available
Last modified: 2014-03-21 11:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Every time I run yum, it emits the following message:
"Error: requested datatype primary not available"
after it successfully updates it's database for all repositories described in yum.repos.d
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update <anything, including nothing>
no modules updated
"yum clean all" doesn't change a thing
FYI, this version of yum came bundled with Centos 6.4 (which I recently installed fresh).
The problem is not in yum. My advice would be to try to find out which repo is causing the problem. Probably renaming /var/cache/yum and running 'yum update' would help.
