I originally did an upgrade from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11. Everything seems to be working except for two problems:
Problem 1:
When I do an update [ System -> Administration->Software Update] it comes back with two screens:
one screen telling me I have 589 updates and a check box for installing the updates, and a second screen saying the following:

"An internal error has occurred
A problem that we were not expecting has occurred. Please report this bug in your distribution bugtracker with the error description.
Error Type: <class 'yum.Errors.RepoError'>
Error Value: database disk image is malformed
File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 2828, in <module>
main()"

When I check the install updates box on the first screen I get the following message:

"Problem connecting to a software source
Failure: repodata/f27db58f0d045f3baa1c742316c2ac78badb7ca2-filelists.sqlite.bz2 from rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try."
I saved the bug report. How to I send it to the appropriate place?

Problem 2:
Google Earth no longer works. It produces a display that is randomly splashed with variously shaped dark blotches. It can't be my video since it worked fine with Fedora 10.

What's up?

Open a terminal "su -" to become root run "yum update" and PM me the output please.

Go to rpmfusion download, verify and then install their rpm then yum the drivers for your graphics card, that should fix google earth.

Good luck :) 


I did a "yum update" as root as per your first suggestion and got the following output:

[root@nowak1 ~]# yum update

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

As far as your second suggestion is concerned, could you elaborate a little? My graphics card is a Radeon 9200.
Thanks for your help on this.

It looks like your computer cannot connect to the mirrors to download the updates.

Are you connected to a wired network with working DNS?

Can you ping any of the mirrors?

ping mirror.liberty.edu
ping mirror.web-ster.com



Good luck :)

Yes I was able to ping mirror.liberty.edu and mirror.web-ster.com as well as several others.
Thanks again.
