Description Kinshuk Sunil 2010-04-24 10:31:03 UTC
Description of problem:
I was running Fedora 12. Started updating my Fedora 12 install to Fedora 13 Beta as I was told it had better hardware support for my Dell Inspiron 1564 Laptop.

Started following steps mentioned at: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum

When I reached step 4, since then any yum commands results in the error message:
"Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again"

I have searched the internet for solutions to these issues. Have already tried the following:
1. Switch baseurl and mirrorlist in my fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo
2. Added Mirror IPs in my /etc/hosts
3. Added a proxy statement inside my yum.conf (since I am under a proxy)

But neither has solved my issue.

Additional info:
Current Yum.conf - http://fpaste.org/ZYNz/
Current Fedora.repo - http://fpaste.org/qLwE/
Actual Yum Output - http://fpaste.org/zHhp/

rpm -q fedora-release: fedora-release-13-0.7.noarch
rpm -q libproxy: libproxy-0.2.3-12.fc12.i686
