Default rawhide repo giving me an odd error

Hi,

I've been away from my pc for the last couple of days and have come back
to find a problem.

When I try to do an update from yum, I'm getting the following error

Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: rawhide. Please verify
its path and try again

Looking at the fedora-rawhide.repo file, nothing looks untoward. If I
change from using the mirrors to the baseurl, the error goes, but then
it also reports that there are no updates available.

Have I missed another change? The system was happily doing auto updates
until (I think) Thursday.

TTFN

$ wget -O -
'https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=rawhide&arch=x86_64'

works for me repeatedly.

You can use:

yum repolist -v rawhide

...to see when the last time you got data was, if it's over a couple of
days for rawhide something bad is probably happening.

This is not showing anything of any value up as it's complaining about
the metalink. Oddly, Matt's solution of

wget -O -
'https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=rawhide&arch=i686'

does work, but it looks like the problem is a crypto one...

It's also a yum bug that it doesn't give you a sane error message, and
you have to run it with URLGRABBER_DEBUG=1 just to see what happened:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=576267

Try (as root) 'setup-nsssysinit.sh off' to see if it fixes the
underlying certificate problem. The system-wide NSS database is an
extremely useful plan, but the implementation is still fairly broken.

I'm seeing exactly the same error. I reinstalled the fedora-release
file to ensure I had the latest repo configs and still no difference.
If I disabled the mirrorlist and enabled to baseurl option it works
fine.
