RepoError: failed to retrieve repodata/updateinfo.xml.gz from
rhel-x86_64-client-workstation-5
error was [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum

 This means exactly what it says: RHN is giving out bad MD.
Comment 7 Sebastian Skracic 2010-12-21 09:40:16 EST
The way the repodata are being generated now significantly diminishes the possibility of the dreaded "Metadata file does not match checksum" error message.  Please feel free to reopen if you still experience the same problem, assuming you have freshly downloaded the repodata after 'yum clean all' has been run.
