Yum Presto plugin functionality has been merged into yum directly in Fedora 19+. To disable Delta RPMS, you need to set deltarpm=0 in /etc/yum.conf

Presto/deltarpms may be great if you're still using dialup or something, but personally I find it an obnoxious slowdown. It's way faster to download the whole RPM than to sit and wait as my computer churns to build a delta RPM that saves maybe 10 seconds of download time. The presto.conf file no longer exists in Fedora 19, so I hope there's some other way to turn this crap off.

Set deltarpm=0 in /etc/yum.conf. Refer to man yum.conf for more details.

Take a look at this thread:

Basically, you have to create this file:

$ cat /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/presto.conf 

But why would you disable presto? Do you know what is it for?
