I'm trying to check if there are any available Apache updates to install on a brand new web server running Fedora 5, but when I enter the following command:
yum check-update httpd
I get the following error:
[root@ren-production ~]# yum check-update httpd
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
core                                                                 [1/3]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core

By the way, the box does connect to the Internet.

your repos listing in  files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ is not valid or pointing to a repository which is not available any more.

edit the file to see if the url given there is accessible over internet

this is my file

***********

[core]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/

Could this be happening because the fedora web site is down?

I just checked the files in yum.repos.d and they all point to the main fedora web page. Is there any other place where I can get the updates or do I have to wait for the site to come back up?

I found this solution at a Linux forum site. I followed the instructions detailed below, removed the repos on yum.repos.d (copies them to another file, of course) and I'm now able to run yum without any errors. I wasn't able to Add/Remove Software.

***************************
To use CD/DVD as repository

create a .repo file as shown below in /etc/yum.repos.d/
Sample: /etc/yum.repos.d/installcd.repo
#
[installcd]
name=Fedora Core 5 Installation DVD
baseurl=file:///media/disk
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///media/disk/RPM-GPG-KEY
gpgcheck=1

# baseurl : give the path where the repodata folder exists on CD
# gpgkey : give path of folder on CD where RPM-GPG-KEY exists
#

In case no internet connection is available then disable rest of the repos and one should be able to install from CD only.
**********************

I'll award the points to ygoutham since his suggestions of checking the repos dawned on me that this was not working with the fedora site being down. Still very much a newbie in this area.......
