I’m running Yellow Dog Linux 3.0 on an old Powermac 8500. I would like to update the software using the "yup update" command in the terminal. It polls the RPM database, runs the dependency sanity check, the server signals ready — but then it fails with the message "Error: 550 Cannot get file size." This is making me crazy. Anyone have any ideas?
The problem is not simply downloading the file, which I can do. I’m trying to use the command line update tool so that I don’t have to handle the updates manually, which can be done but is a nuisance.
