I get the error Repository 'deb': Error parsing config: Error parsing "baseurl = 'deb'" after adding a repository. Can I fix this, or remove all repositories and add back the fedora20 ones?

I was attempting to add a repository, and it did not work, so I removed the repository and now I get the above error.

RESOLVED: Did not see deb.repo in repository list in /etc/yum/repos.d/, removed via [Ace@LandisPearce yum.repos.d]$ sudo rm deb.repo Repositories and Yum now function without error, thank you $jensm

EDIT: $jensm contains only one 'e'. Originally believed to be extraneous, found instead to be holdover from mistype of 'Repositories'. 'e' successfully removed from $jensm and restored to 'Repositories'.

You should accept your own answer as the correct one

Which repo you wanna try to add? It looks like a debian one, and this can not be working

That's what I mean. I was trying to add a repository, and it was a deb repository. That's the only repository for the program, so I gave up on installing it and removed the repository, but now I get that error.

Which program? Please post content of /etc/yum.repos.d/

[Ace@LandisPearce yum.repos.d]$ ls deb.repo fedora-updates-testing.repo rpmfusion-free-rawhide.repo rpmfusion-free-updates-testing.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates.repo fedora.repo google-chrome.repo rpmfusion-free.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide.repo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing.repo fedora-updates.repo livna.repo rpmfusion-free-updates.repo rpmfusion-nonfree.repo

Ouch, my formatting

Remove deb.repo via console and make afterwards yum update. For more details read the links above.
