I am trying to install google chrome on my fresh install of Fedora 20 64-bit. When I go to google's chrome page it gives me a:

  1. That’s an error.

That’s all we know.

Then if I try to install through yum I get this:

sudo yum install google-chrome-stable

... ...

Install  1 Package (+65 Dependent packages)

Total size: 67 M
Total download size: 59 M
Installed size: 192 M
Is this ok [y/d/N]: y
Downloading packages:
No Presto metadata available for google-chrome
google-chrome-stable-31.0.1650 FAILED                                  [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found
Trying other mirror.

Error downloading packages:
  google-chrome-stable-31.0.1650.63-1.x86_64: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Any ideas would be helpful, or at least some explanations. Thanks

nscornia, I am experiencing the same problem on two separate fedora 20 installs. I guessing the problem is with Google, I am going to attempt to contact their support.

Contacting Google Support is apparently not a thing one can do easily. In the meantime, the beta version is available and seems stable enough.

It looks like the repo is back up and running on Google's side. I just installed it this morning.

Enable Google YUM repository

Add following to /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo file:



name=google-chrome - 64-bit





Install Google Chrome with YUM (as root user)

yum install google-chrome-stable

After creating the file, it still produces the same problem.

As other people mentioned you can add google chrome repository to yum repositories, but you need to tell yum to download it from that specific repository. Here is my attempt:

Save this with name "google-chrome.repo" in /etc/yum.repos.d/


Now update yum and install the chrome from the above repository by using this command.

(Assuming you are in su mode):

yum update
yum --disablerepo "*" --enablerepo "google-chrome" install google-chrome-stable

you should refresh metadata with:

yum --enablerepo=google-chrome clean all

yum clean all is tricky because won't clean metadata of disablerepos
