I have done lots of things to update.

yum clean all.
yum clean metadata
yum clean dbcache

then ...

yum update

but the output is: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found Trying other mirror.

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: addons. Please verify its path and try again

I have done also:

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo

Modify it to enabled=0

But the same. :(

I have done this too:

yum -v update --disablerepo=contrib
uname -a

The same

I have done again another way... like...

touch /.autorelabel

yum -v update --disablerepo=contrib

What should i do????Give me some answer :( :( please.

If you open the link, you get a 404 error, which is exactly what yum told you.

If you go down the tree until, you can see a readme:

This directory (and version of CentOS) is depreciated. For normal users, you should use /5/ and not /5.6/ in your path. Please see this FAQ concerning the CentOS release scheme:

If you know what you are doing, and absolutely want to remain at the 5.6 level, go to for packages. Please keep in mind that 5.6 no longer gets any updates

You should check how to upgrade to a newer version.
