Default no updates?

Hi,

since some days I get absolutely no updates.

Under bodhi I can see (just a simple example)
gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.19-2.fc9 on my system there is

[choeger@choeger6 svn]$ rpm -q gstreamer-plugins-base
gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.19-1.fc9.i386

and yum says: no packages found.

I assume that goes for a lot of packages (including yum, gedit and
others I've had a look at).

What went wrong?

regards

christoph

Are they available on your favourite mirror already?
Or do you use the mirrorlist?

That's a very recent update, which takes time to travel to all mirrors.

"yum clean metadata", then try again. Alternatively, disable
mirrorlist and pick a nearby mirror, which is up-to-date often
and sooner than arbitrary mirrors on mirrorlist.

I've had this same problem a couple of times. You'll see updates coming
in in email to fedora-test-list and then after a couple of days you'll
notice that the updates never happened.

If I then yum clean all the updates work as soon as I run yum update
manually.

I think there might be a bug here, but haven't got any idea how to test
for it, and haven't got around to reporting it either.

You can test for it by examining the cached metadata files below
/var/cache/yum/updates. Start with the timestamp on "cachecookie". Only if
old enough, Yum loads new metadata. [The default is 1800 seconds in
yum.conf's metadata_expire= value.] Compare timestamp of "repomd.xml" with
the mirror that is assigned to you (file "mirrorlist.txt". Recent Yum
versions ignore mirrors that offer repomd.xml files which are older than
what you've got in your cache. This way you can find mirrors which don't
sync daily.

Right, so I see this:

in repomd.xml

<?xml version="1.0" ?><repomd xmlns="http://linux.duke.edu/metadata/repo">


In mirrorlist.txt

# repo = updates-released-f9 arch = i386 country = AU
http://mirror.optus.net/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386
http://ftp.iinet.net.au/pub/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386
http://mirror.3fl.net.au/pub/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386
http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386
http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386
http://ringtail.its.monash.edu.au/pub/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386

I'm not seeing linux.duke.edu in here. Should I?

No, because it's only an XML namespace parameter in the repomd.xml
header pointing to the DTD file. Every repomd.xml file contains it at
the beginning.
