Clearing Yum Cache

Yum caches the repositories' filelist.xml. If your metadata is somehow cached forever, you can easily refresh it by clearing it manually. The cache files are located at /var/cache/yum/. So simply remove the repo name directory and that should trigger yum to repopulate the cache.

# cd /var/cache/yum
# rm -rf <reponame>
# yum update

Note: this is applicable for Fedora and CentOS/Redhat operating systems.
