    Same for me with both Fedora 8 and 9. I don't know what is going on.

    I found an answer. Something is being fixed, but it is too vague for
    me to understand what is wrong. Read the messages at

    What repository are you pulling from? Your nearest repository may not have
    been updated in some time, and you may have to manipulate your Yum settings to
    use another one.

    Some of the Red Hat machines were compromised, and they are trying to
    clean up the mess before offering any more updates. See
    http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN and look at the latest issue about
    Fedora infrastructure ongoing issues.

  8. Re: No updates for Fedora 9?

    Is there any update on this yet.

    Fedora (and RedHat) have been very tight-lipped on this subject.
    i've run the openssh-blacklist.sh script and my system doesn't have
    any suspect packages.

    Even so, not having updates working at all makes me nervous of
    RedHat's ability to overcome security breaches and continue to supply
    good support to their customers (whether RHEL or Fedora).

    Come on guys, get the yum servers running again, enough is enough!

    I'd rather have them take their time to make sure everything is secure
    and all servers and files are clean before restarting the repositories
    and updates. Besides, my Fedora 9 64-bit system is running just fine:
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Or are you just having update
    withdrawals? ;-)

    Maybe there just haven't been any updates?

    At the minimum there should have already been a new release of the
    kernel by now.

    .... of course, just try to *find* it ... although it does seem like
    they've got most of the old packages signed with the new key. Trying to
    find the new key is still a challenge, too. It should be at

    http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?...2196F&op=index

    Maybe next week.

    I just checked. The new Fedora key is now on the PGP server. FWIW, I
    got the key index from http://fedoraproject.org/keys under the heading
    "Currently used keys." It's also eventually supposed to be in a new
    fedora-release package signed with the old key.

    The Fedora packages "released" yesterday still aren't available for
    download. There was an announcement (dated yesterday, but didn't show
    up in email until this morning) that they're still waiting for the
    mirrors to sync all the old packages with their new signatures.
