    I recently ran /scripts/upcp to find it just paused at

    Updating FTP Server...Ftp Setup Script Version 6.1

    and didn't get any further... after leaving it for 10 minutes, I killed the update. Tried again. same thing. killed off the processes, then, on a hunch I tried

    yum clean all

    This time, I got to

    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror

    and it hung again... in fact, trying to run yum in any way just hung at this message. The only things to have changed was a recent ksplice install, and xymon client - nothing earth shattering...

    In the end I gave up and had to restart the machine in the early hours. Once the machine was restarted, I noticed yum-updatesd was in the results from

    ps -ef | grep yum

    and was still there after 20 minutes... as it's not running on my other servers, I stopped the service before trying to run upcp again, which seemed to go through fine this time...

    - far from ideal, but it was beyond my ken to fix it... anyone got any ideas?

    I am also having a problem with yum, mine is a little different though. In your case, try editing the fastestmirror.conf file and setting the following "enabled=0" and see what your results are.
