    Keep getting the following error on my Centos installation:

    http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/6/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found"
    Trying other mirror.
    Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: Dropbox. Please verify its path and try again

    Can't delete the repo (get same error). Can't uninstall, reinstall, or do anything with Dropbox.

    Any ideas?

    That doesn't work. It still shows Dropbox as a repo.

    I can get it to work properly if I type: sudo yum update --disablerepo=Dropbox

    How can I permanently disable the Dropbox repo?
