Can I ignore such error?

Since a few days I get the following error message on one (!) of my servers

Could not get metalink error was
12: Timeout on (28, 'Operation timed out after 30000 milliseconds with 0 out of 0 bytes received')

How to deal with?

Sincerely, Marko

Did you already try to clear the yum cache?

yes I did it.

Maybe it helps to clear the cache manually:

rm -rf /var/cache/yum


yum update

work without errors? If yes, I think the error can be ignored.



Thank you, Markus
