Fedora Core software update hangs

Hello,
2 software update problems:

1) I have had this problem with fedore core 4 and now fedora core 5.  When I run the Software Updater supplied by fedora (not the YUM command line update).  It always hangs at:

RESOLVING DEPENDENCIES FOR UPDATE

I have left it sit there for many hours and it never does the update.  This has occurred several different PCs with various CPU speeds and amounts of memory.  This is pretty annoying.

2) Enter "yum update" command.  Get a lot of these type of errors......FC4 and FC5 also
    and on various PCs.

   [Errno -1] Header is not complete.


Any body got any ideas?  These were all clean installs on Linux and the drive was wiped.

hi,

I have had problems with the GUI updater but yum update via command line works fine,

Could you paste your output of the yum update command also are you behind a proxy?
jsvorCommented:
How about trying "yum update yum".  Once yum has been updated try "yum update" again.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

here is what I really need.....

I need a yum.conf that will work with Fedora Core 5.  I found some on the internet,  but have not found one that really works.  This kinda bums me out a bit.....FC5 is a great OS, but really stinks in this area.....

Checked my firewall log and nothing there either.

Funny thing.....months ago, this seemed to work on FC3.

Hi,

Try this:

rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm

then type yum update
