Hi,

after updating from FC4 to FC5, I have problems to update my system:

yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
core                                                                 [1/3]
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core

Addtitionally, I removed all yum files/dirs in /etc and reinstalled yum, but nothing helped.

Always getting the same error msg.

/etc/yum.conf:
#======================================================

This is not the yum.conf I got with my FC5 install.
You did an update, so it seems the likely cause is that yum may have
created a .rpmnew file for your yum.conf instead of replacing it.
Possibly the same happened with files in /etc/yum.repos.d .  You need
the new yum.conf and the new /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo files to use yum on
the new distribution.

You may want to do a download of the yum rpm file (or use the one on
your install CD/DVD) then do a "yum erase yum" or an "rpm -e yum".

After that completes do an rpm reinstall of yum to get all the new
yum.conf and .repo files

The .repo files come from the fedora-release package, not the yum package.
