I just tried to update my centos 5 install via yum and got the following error messages:
filelists.sqlite.bz2 | 1.5 MB 00:01 http://centos.eecs.wsu.edu/5.4/updates/i386/repodata/filelists.sqlite.bz2: [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum Trying other mirror. filelists.sqlite.bz2 | 1.1 MB 00:00 http://mirror.facebook.net/centos/5.4/updates/i386/repodata/filelists.sqlite.bz2: [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum Trying other mirror. ....
I searched on line for “yum update Metadata file does not match checksum” and found a helpful blog post. Following the post suggestion, I ran
yum clean all, which seems to have fixed the problem.
