Do this first.....

This is perplexing.

on a Centos 5.1 box that I am trying to upgrade, I keep getting:

[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error unknown url type: media>

from my local repo. I did a blank system install via http from this
server with no problem.


For instance, if I limit myself to:

yum upgrade yum

I get:

media://1213888991.267240%231/CentOS/yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-2.el5.i386.rpm:
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error unknown url type: media>

Trying other mirror.
Error: failed to retrieve
CentOS/yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-2.el5.i386.rpm from base

error was [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error unknown url type: media>

Yet on the system I built, yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-2.el5.i386.rpm is
there, and I have done a yum update on that system already (how I
learned there are bunches of updates out there).


I suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?

BTW, I did a yum upgrade kernel* and that worked fine. I was going to
try to upgrade piece-by-piece, as this is a slow box.
