Thanks, Dan.  I took a few files out of /etc/yum.repos.d and added 
fedora-extras.repo   After that, yum update seemed to behave.  It ended with 
a note which I don't understand.  I had been trying to use apt a few weeks 
ago until I was told that apt was no longer supported for core 3.

Can I ignore the note below or how do I comply with it?
