I tried

Code: Select all

$ yum --enablerepo=base clean metadata
But I still get the problem when I re-run. Any ideas?

Are you behind a web proxy? Try adding http_caching=packages to your /etc/yum.conf and see if that helps.

The mirror that you are using appears to be missing the drpms directory which would explain the message about no presto data but that is optional and it should work without it. I think some upstream proxy has cached a bad copy of that package and keeps sending it to you.
