asked 2016-06-09 07:03:03 -0600

when i try to install something through terminal(dnf on fedora 23) it always give this:- Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'updates' from 'https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=updates-released-f23&arch=x86_64': Cannot prepare internal mirrorlist: Curl error (6): Couldn't resolve host name for https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/met... [Could not resolve host: mirrors.fedoraproject.org]

That basically means that your dnf can't reach mirrors.fedoraproject.org where it fetches a list of available mirrors that provide Fedora repositories for you.

  • Is your internet connection working fine otherwise?
  • Maybe Fedora's mirrormanager had a little hiccup - try again now (2 hrs after your problem occurred)
  • I can connect, so it was either temporarily, or a problem on your side/your ISP

Out of interest, can you point a browser to that site and get a result?
