Description Jan ONDREJ 2013-08-05 02:35:19 EDT
Description of problem:
If fedora servers are not available, yum-cron is unable to convert some message (may be host unreachable) to proper encoding and raises an error.
I use LANG=sk_SK.UTF-8 locale.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
I think it has something with network unreachables for fedora servers.

Actual results:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/yum-cron", line 1124, in <module>
  File "/usr/sbin/yum-cron", line 1121, in main
  File "/usr/sbin/yum-cron", line 1027, in updatesCheck
