Just did an update to one of my Fedora machines and ran into an issue with yum after the update. Yum no longer works, so after a little fiddling, I found the best solution to the fix. Below is the error.

 

Error:

Warning: group core does not exist.
Warning: group gnome-desktop does not exist.
Warning: group multimedia does not exist.
Warning: group firefox does not exist.
Warning: group guest-desktop-agents does not exist.
Warning: group base-x does not exist.

The solution to fix yum is fairly simple. Its a matter of installing the latest version of yum and that’s it.

Go to:

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=485831

Under the section, “RPMs” Download the “noarch”

As of this post, this is the file name: yum-3.4.3-127.fc20.noarch.rpm

Once downloaded, double click to open and select install.

After the install is completed yum should be working.
