No, the repo is complete, the error is probably because it is "too"
complete. I guess the was withdrawn from Fedora's
archives and now yum gets upset.

I see that as a yum bug, other consider it a feature. Anyway you can
chose whether you like this behaviour or not, and if not you should
install the skip-broken-dependencies yum plugin. The yum will work
like apt/smart and all other depsolvers do.

And since this is the 100.000 time i pointed to this yum bug it would
be nice if some user opened a bug against yum at bugzilla.redhat.com
so yum maintainers can see the need for defaulting to the less strict
working mode for yum.
