Updating centos with yum problem

Hi x-perts,

I am making my first steps with centos... When running yum update, it returns a whole bunch of applications to be updated and after pressing Y to downl;oad these packages, it returns

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?

also, can I update Only the selected packages, but not all?

Thank you

Hi,

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

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It sounds like the mirror that your machine is hitting is out of date with the repos information.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.
