This tends to be a recurring problem for me. Personally, I think that phracek's PyCharm copr should be removed from the fedora-workstation-repositories due to the continuing issues it causes, and from the conversation here, it seems like phracek might not really want their repo to be a part of that package anyway. However, in the meantime here are some suggestions.

If, like me, you constantly get error messages as the system checks for updates automatically (I'm using KDE) which say something to the effect of: Failed to syncrhonize info for '/var/cache/PackageKit/28/metadata/phracek-PyCharm/repodata/(long string of letters and numbers).xml.gz' file or directory doesn't exist', there are two options that may work for you.


$ sudo dnf reinstall fedora-workstation-repositories

This seems to refresh all the information and the error then goes away for a while (few weeks or so) at least.

The other option, if you don't need the PyCharm repo, would be to remove the fedora-workstation-repositories package and just install the third party repos that you need manually.

That is a copr that you must have enabled previously -maybe this one here, or following this article?

The message just says that it is not available for syncing metadata, which can have various reasons. Are you upgrading to F28? Maybe your packages from that repo haven't been built for F28, or the server was down, or ...

What's the content of your /etc/yum.repos.d/_copr_phracek-PyCharm.repo?

yes i upgraded F28 and enable third party repo and my content in /etc/yum.repos.d/coprphracek-Pycharm is

name=Copr repo for PyCharm owned by phracek

That’s an issue with the repository. If you take a look at the URL in baseurl you’ll see that there is no build for F28. That looks like a bug worth reporting to the owner of the copr
