I'm having problems using yum with fedora core 3. I have a fresh install, 
when i try and run "yum update"
The following message is generated:

---> Downloading header for boost to pack into transaction set.
boost-1.32.0-1.fc3.i386.r 100% |=========================| 586 kB    00:05
[Errno -1] Header is not complete.

Similar messages are then generated for each mirror as yum goes through 
I notice that yum claims to be downloading the header, but actually 
downloads the full rpm. Is this a problem?

The end result is that no packages get updated.

The same problem appeared here:

but i haven't found a solution.

Googling for:
yum "Headers is not complete"

shows that the problem is not widespread, but is affecting a few of us!

Please send replies to me as well as the list as i am not subscribed.

Thanks for any help,
