Error: failure: tcsh-6.14-12.i386.rpm from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.I saw something similar today. I "fixed" it by changing the line mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-fc$releasever&arch=$basearch to mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-fc$releasever&country=eu&arch=$basearch in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo . mirrors.fedoraproject.org will send you a list of mirrors for your country, based on your IP address. This is a problem if there is only one mirror for your country which isn't updated very often. You can over-ride this by specifying a particular country in the URL. If the country code exists, mirrors.fedoraproject.org recognises it, and there are mirrors it thinks are valid, it will send you a list of mirrors. If the server *doesn't* recognise the country code, then it reverts to telling you all the mirrors that it knows about. This is effectively what happened anyway for FC5. This solution has the advantage that you have more mirrors from which yum can attempt downloads, which makes things more reliable. It also means that you automatically pick up on any new mirrors (or any mirrors that stop mirroring), and you aren't just dependent on Fedora Project servers (which can get swamped). It has the disadvantage that you will connect to servers that are further away from you, which may increase download time. Using the country code "eu" means that if the Fedora Project ever do publish a Europe-wide list of mirrors, you're likely to pick that up. Hope this helps, James.
