the problem is sjdsoft repo is not available...

Options 1:

follow this step :

  1. sudo yum clean all
  2. sudo yum --disablerepo=SJDSoft-free-fedora,SJDSoft-nonfree-fedora update

    this command disable that repo an you can update without problem, you can substitute update with another command you would like to execute.

Options 2:

delete the repo with problem :

your repo are stored in /etc/yum.repos.d you have to be root to perform this action an navigate to this directory with the cd command in terminal...

  1. mv SJDSoft-fedora.repo SJDSoft-fedora.repo.backup
  2. sudo yum clean all
  3. sudo yum update

P.D : @davidva i'm not agree with him because that not is the problem and delete these package doesn't help to much yum-fastestmirror yum-plugin-fastestmirror

Do you have the final f17 relese rpm installed?

rpm -qa fedora*

Rebuild the database : rpmdb --rebuilddb

su - yum clean all rpm --rebuild yum update

install the yum-utils

yum info yum-utils

OR :

Go to /usr/lib/yum-plugins/ directory and list that package and remove that yum plugin that causing yum to be broken by using rm command.


rm axelget.pyc

rm: remove regular file’? yes rm: remove regular fileaxelget.pyc’? yes

ls fastestmirror.pyo langpacks.pyc presto.pyo refresh-packagekit.pyc fastestmirror.pyc langpacks.pyo presto.pyc refresh-packagekit.pyo

cd –

yum reinstall lokalize

It is bad practice to remove system files outside of the package manager, as suggested in this answer. Additionally, the solution proposed in the answer is not actually relevant to the problem at hand. The OP's posting does not indicate anything other than an uncommunicative repo.
