While running the initial "yum upgrade" using centos 6.5, I get the following error:

[root@controller ~]# yum upgrade

I have switched to a direct connection to the internet (no proxy required), but the behavior remains the same. Anyone else running into this issue?

I've only installed the following pacakges on this fresh (minimal) centos 6.5 installation:

I figured out what the problem was. The RDO repository's URL was malformed. I needed to point the URL directly to the version of Fedora that I intended to upgrade (for CentOS 6.6). I made the change as follows:

From: http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/openstack/openstack-kilo/%25FDIST%25%25RELEASEVER%25/repodata/repomd.xml (http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/o...)

To: https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/openstack/openstack-kilo/f22 (https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/...)

This solved the issue.
