Openvz YUM Error Solution to "[Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum Trying other mirror."



It's weird because I have a nearly identical box and setup and I can update the ovzkernel-PAE* just fine but on this box it doesn't work.
I only get this error with the openvz.repo and not others such as Centos-Base.repo

With my other server it works normally:

======
Here's the problem, yum is looking for an old version of the openvz kernel that isn't on the mirrors, it doesn't know the newest one.
The current one that my other server found was "2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.028stab091.1" but the broken one is looking for "2.6.18-238.5.1.el5.028stab085.5"
I can't update the openvz repo for some reason, I get these errors:

***Solution***

 


Basically yum has cached some garbage info relating to the OpenVZ repository and the only way to fix it is to rebuild this "metadata" cache.

yum clean metadata

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
37 metadata files removed
15 sqlite files removed
0 metadata files removed

I did a yum install ovzkernel-PAE* and it got a newer version downloaded succesfully but it's still out of date!
And yum/openvz still don't think it is out of date for some reason.

Even doing a yum update/upgrade didn't work but I tried hours later and it found the latest version.  Maybe I hit an old mirror or the old cache of some sort for the latest openvz package was still someone on my system.
