Description drago01 2008-07-18 17:47:44 UTC
Description of problem:
I wanted to update my system today but it failed due to a traceback while
downloading the updates.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.2.17-2.fc9.noarch (same was happening with yum-3.2.16-2.fc9.noarch)

How reproducible:
Well no idea, after the last yum clean all; it started happening might be
related to the mirror.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update

Actual results:

Expected results:
no traceback - download the updates and install them
