I'm running Stella 6.5 Kernel 2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.i686 and I always install all the recommended updates. I've recently returned from 10 days away and when I run Software Update it tells me there are 392 updates totalling about 656 MB. When I try to install these I get the following errorÖß

failure: repodata/d7d803f1aee576fdc6ac9187adc85184b55890ae89e31bb86e3 e6505d2a58ba0-filelists.sqlite.bz2 from cr: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Any assistance would be much appreciated!

Charles

Hello,

Yes, there were a few updates (CentOS 6.6 was released), try this:
yum clean all && yum update

Thanks Nux. I assume I need to be root when running that code - here is what I get

I don't under stand the reference to Dropbox - I did try it briefly but I thought I had removed it some time ago. Is it this that's causing the problem?

I think I've managed to work round this. Went to Software Sources under Add/Remove Software where there is an entry for the Dropbox Repo shown as not enabled. I tried to enable this and saw some message about authentification but the "enable" box remained unticked. However when I ran Software Update again everything downloaded and installed as normal. All seems ok.

This makes me wonder if I should remove the Dropbox Repo as I've no intention of using the software again & would like to remove all traces that it left on my system. Not sure how to do this so would appreciate guidance (if it's the right thing to do).

Thanks
Charles

Charles,

All the repo files are in /etc/yum.repos.d, it should be enough to delete the dropbox.repo or whatever it's called.
It might have also been installed by an RPM, you can find out by running this@
rpm -qf /etc/yum.repos.d/dropboxwhateveritiscalled.repo

If the above yields any results you can try to "yum remove" that package.

Dropbox installs quite a bit of software in ~/.dropbox-dist for every user who has used dropbox on the machine. You should remove that directory as well if you want to be thorough. You can delete the application data in ~/.dropbox for good measure.
