I have installed Fedora 20 Beta LXDE spin. Two days ago I have updated all packages with yum update -x lxpanel -x pcmanfm -x libfm-gtk -x libfm. I had to use the excludes, because yum told me that there were conflicts (some packages available in older or newer versions only – don’t remember).

Since then I get no updates! Why? For example I have lxpanel-0.5.12-4.fc20.i686 but this bug on bugzilla states, that there should be version lxpanel-0.6.1-3.fc20 available.

If I want to install gthumb via yum install gthumb I get some warning messages again, that some packages versions are to old.

updates-testing repository got disabled with a recent update and that's probably why you are not seeing any updates.

As root, do yum-config-manager --enable updates-testing to re-enable updates testing and you will have updates flowing to your system again.

Hope this helps.

If you don't want to continue with updates-testing you can use yum distro-sync to match all package versions with those available in the non-testing repos. The conflicts are caused when you have some packages that came from updates-testing and some that did not.

Thanks for both answer and comment. The yum distro-sync helped to get rid of the errors as I didn’t want to have the testing updates.
