I have Fedora 16 installed. It gives me some errors/warnings when updating, and installing software through yum.

error was 14: HTTP Error 404 - Not Found: http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=free-fedora-16&arch=x86_64

Some backend servers have been migrated recently. If I recall correctly there has been a temporary outage.

Please try yum clean all then try again.

I had this issue before. Just uninstall / install the rpmfusion repo.

sudo yum remove rpmfusion-free-release rpmfusion-nonfree-release


sudo yum install rpmfusion-free-release rpmfusion-nonfree-release

This can generally be combined into a single step: yum reinstall <packages> –  Michael Hampton Sep 16 '12 at 15:14
