KpackageKit error: Repository configuration was invalid

I am getting an error message from KpackageKit every few minutes.
"Repository configuration was invalid and could not be read."

"Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository:
InstallMedia. Please verify its path and try again"

# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: dellsysidplugin2, downloadonly, kmdl, priorities,

a) I don't have a repository called "InstallMedia".

b) Its highly annoying that this error keeps popping up and that it
can't be turned off.  It was appearing the other day too and I finally
turned it off by turning off the yum-updatesd service.  But now it seems
to appear even though that is turned off. FRUSTRATING !

I've done a yum clean all and yum clean expire-cache.  It still occurs.

How do I fix this ?
