    Hello,

    When cPanel does it's automatic updates, centos won't update. It shows the error below. It looks like that mirror is down for good because this has been a problem for a while. Does anybody have a suggestion to fix it? Also, I turned off automatic updates but it keeps updating every nite by it self. I turned it off in WHM.

    Code:
    retrygrab() failed for:
      http://mirror.aelix.com/pub/cAos/centos-3/3.3/os/i386/headers/header.info
      Executing failover method
    failover: out of servers to try
    Error getting file http://mirror.aelix.com/pub/cAos/centos-3/3.3/os/i386/headers/header.info
    [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error >
    Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
    Server: Centos-3 3.3 - i386 - Base
    Testing connection speed...(this could take a while)....Done
    Three usable mirrors located
    Mirror Check passed for ftp.sedl.org

    Check your yum.conf and update your mirrors, i believe the one your using is no longer available. A list of mirrors can be found here:
    http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=13

    Here's an example of one off of one of our servers:

    Code:
    [main]
    exclude=mod_ssl* httpd* perl mysql* php*
    cachedir=/var/cache/yum
    debuglevel=2
    logfile=/var/log/yum.log
    pkgpolicy=newest
    distroverpkg=redhat-release
    installonlypkgs=kernel kernel-smp kernel-hugemem kernel-enterprise kernel-debug kernel-unsupported kernel-smp-unsupported kernel-hugemem-unsupported
    tolerant=1
    exactarch=1
    
    [base]
    name=CentOS-$releasever - Base

    #additional packages that may be useful
    [extras]
    name=CentOS-$releasever - Extras

    Comes in handy to have a couple mirrors at least for a fallback.
