Hi all;

I'm getting this the first time I try and run yum update on a new install of 
CentOS 5.4 (x86_64):

Error: requested datatype primary not available

My internet connection is working
a 'yum clean all'  does not help

[root at localhost ~]# yum clean all
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Cleaning up Everything
Cleaning up list of fastest mirrors

[root at localhost ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Determining fastest mirrors
 * addons: mirror.fdcservers.net
 * base: mirror.fdcservers.net
 * extras: mirrors.serveraxis.net
 * updates: mirrors.bluehost.com
|  509 B     00:00     
Error: requested datatype primary not available


thanks in advance...
