HEAnet is having problems again. For some reason they still offer files 
(repoview) that have been removed a few weeks back. And for some reason 
they did update the metadata but not the packages (which cannot happen if 
the update process was using --delay-updates). And that is in this case 
the result of yum trying to update packages that are not available (while 
they should have).

I think they once again have major NFS problems.

But, I have no access to that system and that system is used by all 
the other mirrors. So we are basicly doomed... until it gets fixed.
