I'm on f19. Yum is giving me a pycurl 43 error and this is preventing me from doing anything with yum. I've tried googling for a solution but it hasn't helped.

    pycurl.error: (43, 'CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST no longer supports 1 as value!')

I hate necrobumping but maybe this will help someone with the same issue. Version 3.10 of urlgrabber resolves the error without having to modify any of the code itself.

First remove the old version of urlgrabber to prevent any issues:

pip uninstall urlgrabber

Unfortunately the latest version available on pip is 3.9.1 so you're going to need to pull the latest code from the git repo and compile it yourself.

git clone git://
cd urlgrabber && python install

You should now be on the latest version of urlgrabber. You can double check by running:

pip show urlgrabber

You should see version 3.10.x. Yum should now be working again.

I managed to get around this problem by changing

self.curl_obj.setopt(pycurl.SSL_VERIFYHOST, opts.ssl_verify_host)


self.curl_obj.setopt(pycurl.SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2.0)

in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/urlgrabber/
