One important thing is NOT to change the NAME of the .repo file ... Or,
if you do change the name, make sure that you put a CentOS-Base.repo
file there so that a new one is not placed in your yum.repos.d directory
 (as KB said, if there is a modified file, it will not be replaced ...
if there is no file with that name, a new one will be put there).

You said you upgraded ... are you sure you have your path is correct now?
