I think it would be nice if you were given an option to retry the download rather than crash.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 08:18:12 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-10-28 11:10:48 EDT
You should usually be given the option to retry things like this, yes.  The problem is that the increasing use of properties in yum makes it difficult for us to know where repos are going to get setup and where errors may occur, so we don't know where to add error handling.  Can you please test with F12 Beta again and let me know if this is still an issue, though?
Comment 5 Orion Poplawski 2009-11-20 16:59:49 EST
Things do seem much better now.  I'll reopen if it occurs again.
