[CentOS] Reconfiguring yum

Tue Apr 28 20:29:46 UTC 2009

Hi there --

I need to reconfigure yum on one of our centos 5.3 systems in order for the
automatic updates to work. 
Currently the error messages that I am getting are shown below:

$ sudo yum check-update
Loaded plugins: allowdowngrade, changelog, downloadonly, fastestmirror,
priorities, protectbase, tsflags, versionlock

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository:
c5-media. Please verify its path and try again

What file(s) do I need to modify in order to fix this issue, and also what are
the correct URL's to have in place? Thanks.
