This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

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
