Update Fedora Repositories from Fedora Workstation 31 to Fedora Workstation 32

Update Fedora Repositories from Fedora Workstation 31 to Fedora Workstation 32

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Currently all current Fedora Workstation users (version 32) receive the below error message:

Dropbox Repository                                 51 kB/s |  25 kB     00:00    
Errors during downloading metadata for repository 'Dropbox':
  - Status code: 404 for http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/32/repodata/repomd.xml (IP: 54.192.73.23)
Error: Failed to download metadata for repo 'Dropbox': Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried
Ignoring repositories: Dropbox


This is because Fedora Workstation 32 anticipated an update to your Fedora repositories. However, upon looking at the directory list and consulting Dropbox customer support on Twitter, it is clear that there is not an updated Fedora Workstation 32 repository. See here: https://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/

 

Why you should update this repository:


1. You have clearly maintained a repository for most older versions of Fedora Workstation, so this missing repository for 32 is an inconsistent abberation.
2. Fedora Workstation 32 is upstream of corporate subscription-based RedHat Enterprise Linux, therefore, updating this for Fedora Workstation 32 will fix this issue once Workstation is merged into RedHat Enterprise Linux.
3. You may have subscribers who use Fedora Workstation 32 for their professional work. Their subscription money should pay for an update to your Fedora repositories for the latest version: 32.
4. This has already been an issue which many users have asked you to fix.

Therefore, updating your repositories will maintain your current customer base and future customer base once Fedora Workstation 32 is merged downstream into Redhat Enterprise Linux and maintain your reputation with professional Linux users.

Hi @Coca-Cola Advertisement , as noted in this thread, the Fedora 32 repository has been created.

 

Hope this helps!
