Update list error?

In nodeWorx, when i hit refresh on the update list, I get a message that says" List update failed."

Is this anything to worry about? Are the update servers down? I dont do the auto update, im a little (lot) too paranoid (i prefer to see if the update breaks anyone else first ;))

Try running
yum update
on the command line as root, and see if there are any errors.


maybe more yum update-check ?

I think you’re referring to

yum check-update

which would also be acceptable. Running

yum update

will give you a chance to decline installing any updates, but it will go through process as check-update above.



yum update gives me:

retrygrab() failed for:
  Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file http://updates.interworx.info/redhat/updates/9/en/os/headers/
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

Try it out now, the YUM archive wasn’t rebuilt after the last updates sync.


Cool, works.

Was just worried i broke somehting on the server :wink:
