Hi guys!

I have a problem: after succesfully update my system through command "yum update" a few days ago, today, I tried to update, but, boom!!

# yum update
Complementos cargados:langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit, tidy-cache, yum-fast-downloader
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/yum", line 29, in <module>

    errcode = main(args)
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 146, in main
    result, resultmsgs = base.doCommands()

    return self.yum_cli_commands[self.basecmd].doCommand(self, self.basecmd, self.extcmds)
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 405, in doCommand
    return base.updatePkgs(extcmds, update_to=(basecmd == 'update-to'))
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 890, in updatePkgs

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/", line 837, in _getUpdates
    self._up = rpmUtils.updates.Updates(self.rpmdb.simplePkgList(), self.pkgSack.simplePkgList())
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/", line 1013, in <lambda>
    pkgSack = property(fget=lambda self: self._getSacks(),
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/", line 777, in _getSacks
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/", line 331, in populateSack
    sack._retrieve_async(repo, data)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/", line 144, in _retrieve_async
    repo._retrieveMD(mydbtype, async=True, failfunc=None)
TypeError: myRetrieveMD() got an unexpected keyword argument 'async'

I got that :(

Any ideas?? This is a critical error!! :s

I think so its problem about yum-fast-downloader

try it:


yum -y remove yum-fast-downloader

rm -f /etc/yum.repos.d/yum-fast.repo

yum -y update
