Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-11 08:59:39 EDT
Does it work if you disable the fastest mirror plugin?
Comment 3 Tim McConnell 2007-09-11 17:58:47 EDT
(In reply to comment #2)
> Does it work if you disable the fastest mirror plugin?

[root@red1 yum.repos.d]# yum --noplugins update
Repository updates-debuginfo is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository updates-source is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository updates is listed more than once in the configuration
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: %s.
Please verify its path and try again

Guess that is a no 
I have also opened a thread on fedora forums 
It will explain what else I have tried. 
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-12 10:52:07 EDT
Based on your comments there, it looks like you had a corrupted repository
config.  I've made the handling for that quite a bit nicer for Fedora 8 so that
it'll be easier for people to fix problems.
