Package update failing

For the last couple of days I have had an update to Webmin supposedly available, but each time I try to update I get the following error:

Building complete list of updates ..

Now updating webmin ..

     One of the configured repositories failed (Virtualmin Distribution Neutral Packages),
     and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
     safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

         1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

         2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
            upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
            distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
            packages for the previous distribution release still work).

         3. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
                yum --disablerepo=virtualmin-universal ...

         4. Disable the repository permanently, so yum won't use it by default. Yum
            will then just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it
            again or use --enablerepo for temporary usage:

                yum-config-manager --disable virtualmin-universal
                subscription-manager repos --disable=virtualmin-universal

         5. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
            Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
            so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
            slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

                yum-config-manager --save --setopt=virtualmin-universal.skip_if_unavailable=true

    failure: repodata/ca9d5169c59ebd446bbfd78338ffee064d5f61c5-filelists.sqlite.bz2 from virtualmin-universal: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

    .. install failed!

No packages were installed. Check the messages above for the cause of the error.

(I have redacted my licence key above.)

On a related note, for a long time now -- weeks at least, possibly a couple of months or more -- Virtualmin keeps telling me, "A new version 18.49-8 of Authentic Theme is available. Please update." However, I already have version 18.49-8 and when I try to update, nothing happens. This make sense, of course, but why have I been pestered with this update for weeks now for no apparent reason?




Do you still see this, even after running yum clean all ?

That fixed it. Sorry, didn't seem obvious to me that yum clean all would fix a 404 error, but my bad.

Still being prompted to upgrade the Authentic Theme though.

I suspect the yum clean all was only needed due to a temporary corruption or inconsistency in the YUM repository.
