http://centos.mirror....... etc etc Package does not match intended download

trying other mirror

Error downloading Packages [Errno 2 56]

What am I doing wrong?

Here's a pretty good how to on yum usage.

It sounds like the mirror that your machine is hitting is out of date with the repos information.
try  yum check-update

If that fails too, then there are other issues to resolve first.

Make sure you have dns lookup information working.

Hi,

Do a 'yum clean all' and then try the command again.
