Hi,

It seems that you've messed up your repo settings. Will you post the contents of your /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

Cheers,
K.

Your base repo is ok. List the directory for repo files. All you need is CentOs repos. Move others to another directory and retry yum .

/etc/yum.repos.d is a directory. It contains all the repo files yu can use through yum. Since your base repo that comes with CentOS installation is intact it seems that some of the rpeo files (files with .repo extension) causes this problem.

you can search them using the command:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
grep "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Mono/RHEL_5/repodata/repomd.xml

when you've got the file please remove it as it is obvious that the location does not have anything for you to use.
