And you're able to reliably get that error from 3.2.19?
Can you run yum clean all and try it again?
Also is this a problem on the command line too? Or just when using the GUI?
Oh, and can you give the output of "yum repolist"
I ran the yum clean all and then retried running the update from the gui and it worked fine, so problem solved. I ran the yum repolist but after the install ran OK, so I don't know if it is relevant, but the output was:
[root@Samba ~]# yum repolist
repo id repo name status
fedora Fedora 8 - i386 enabled : 8,439
updates Fedora 8 - i386 - Updates enabled : 1
updates-newkey Fedora 8 - i386 - Updates Newkey enabled : 5,195
Thanks for your help.
