Hello all.

Today I've installed F16 (actually, the sysadmin did it) and I need to install ffmpeg. For some reason, I get the error

Error: Package: ffmpeg-libs-0.8.5-2.fc16.x86_64 (rpmfusion-free)
           Available: libvpx- (fedora)
           Installed: libvpx-1.0.0-1.fc16.x86_64 (@updates)
               Not found
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

which is exactly what is reprted in this question. The solution suggested there does not work for me. What else can I try?

If you've installed F16, it's probably because the repositories have old data in them. F16 is not a current fedora version and does not receive updates or new packages. Please try with F17/18/18beta and I'm sure it'll work.

You have out of date repository data. You need to have your network turned on and where you can reach the internet. Try cleaning yum up first, then do a "yum update" to fully update your system.

# yum clean all
# yum update

If you did not install the rpmfusion repository package, you need to do that before the two commands above.

# yum install
# yum install

Please make sure that you have both the rpmfusion repositories installed as @mooninite noted. After that, try the following:

yum clean all
yum distro-sync
yum update 
yum install ffmpeg
