Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: utterramblings. Please verify its path and try again

I tried to clean caches,

yum clean packages
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
0 package files removed

Then install again, still return the same error. I use apache 2.2.3, how to solve the problem? many thanks.

rpm -qa|grep httpd

My answer:

You have an invalid repository named utterramblings which is preventing yum from working.

Disable or remove the repository (most likely from /etc/yum.repos.d directory) and then try again.
