Description of problem: Package Manager Error Message


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.6.29.1-46.fc11.I586


How reproducible: see below


Steps to Reproduce:
1. System > Administration > Update System

3.
  
Actual results:  Msg popped up a couple of times while working in openoffice.org write.  Then I tried manual update and also received an error msg.


Expected results: download updates


Additional info: I tried to update manually and got error msg reading:

Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: rpmfusion-free. Please verify its path and try again

THIS is the message for the bug report:

    yum: catch yum.Errors.RepoError rather than printing a backtrace. Fixes rh#494227
