No updates mail and errors in software center

Not sure if this is down to the timings of my subscription ending (because no warnings were given) and the renewal, but I am no longer getting the daily mail letting me know what updates are waiting. Also, trying to use the Software Center elicits this:

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from sb-base: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 403 - Forbidden [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 403 - Forbidden

The install/update may have failed due to metadata caching issues. Please clean the cache by clicking the button below and retry the install/update operation.

Hitting the button to clear the cache responds with an identical message.


Yes, it is.

Even after the renewal was processed and now shows as current and valid in the UI.


You’re still getting that error after renewing your subscription? Then I’m not sure. That’s the error I got when mine expired (about a week ago IIRC), but as soon as I renewed, I was able to run yum upgrade without errors.

Yep. The errors were from about an hour ago:



Don’t know if it should work, but can you access the repo URLS from a browser providing your subscription credentials?

What are the credentials. I can’t remember what e-mail I’ve used in the past to connect to Asking for a password reset with every possible mail I could have used hasn’t resulted in any mail received back.

Also, the only fields I can see in the subscription db are: Secret and SystemId. No mail address or encrypted password.


I hoped they were the registration email and password. Anyway, I don’t know if it is supposed to work in this way or not, was just an idea.
