yum output

Have same. Log attached, three commands were executed:

# yum clean all

Yum version: yum-3.4.3-29.fc17.noarch
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2012-11-12 09:48:21 EST
yum-3.4.3-30.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Comment 3 Andrew Travneff 2012-11-12 12:02:18 EST
yum-3.4.3-30.fc17 fixed that for me.
A lot of "HTTP Error 404 - Not Found" and following at the end still remains, but it's an another issue, I think:

Error: Error reading from file /var/cache/yum/x86_64/17/rpmfusion-nonfree-updates/f56ebe3da6bce5ab8eb04f4be534d62b4a6736ee1ba6e0ffbedfe9fbb55b5408-primary.sqlite.bz2: compressed file ended before the logical end-of-stream was detected

Package yum-3.4.3-30.fc17:
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing yum-3.4.3-30.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).

> +1 Can't update packages :(

If you have same problem with me ("compressed file ended" and abort), you can try following: comment "mirrorlist" line in /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-nonfree-updates.repo (section rpmfusion-nonfree-updates), and uncomment "baseurl" line.
Then do update and revert that changes. Further updates should be ok because yum will keep good repomd.xml.

Seems like problem with repo metadata at rpmfusion mirrors.
Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2012-11-18 21:22:52 EST
