Expected results:
running yum update

Additional info:
If I try to use baseurl instead of mirrorlist I had this error: 
 yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rawhide. Please verify its path and try again
Comment 1 seth vidal 2009-01-21 13:58:07 EST
Please try yum 3.2.21-3.fc11 from rawhide. I believe there are some missing error messages here which may help us.
Comment 2 seth vidal 2009-03-03 15:37:41 EST
please try the latest yum and let us know if you're still seeing this error. I think we've gotten some of them fixed.

1.Install Fedora witch packages from rawhide

 Also note that if you install the fgedora-release from rawhide the version of yum you have cannot handle it you need at least 3.2.21-12.
