Hello,

I have an installation of CentOS 5.2 that all of a sudden began experiencing problems with yum. Whenever I try to do any task with yum, I get the following. As you can see I have rpmfusion repos installed. How do I go about solving this problem?

TIA

I dont think those repo is working
can you disabled those repo and try to install this repo and try again

wget -c http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/4/i386/epel-release-4-9.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh epel-release-4-9.noarch.rpm

 wget -c  http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Hi,

It seems that you've messed up your yum config files. As far as I understand you've enabled rpmfusion update databases over the default config databases. Check yhe files in your /etc/yum.repos.d and check inside them for exclusions.
