Installed hadoop via yum install

But now when I do yum install anything it says

14: HTTP Error 404 - Not Found : http://vdt.cs.wisc.edu/hadoop/mirrorlists/hadoop-16-x86_64.txt

How do I clear this http://vdt.cs.wisc.edu/hadoop/mirrorlists/hadoop-16-x86_64.txt

I am not sure where yum is pulling that URL as I am not sure how you have your Repo's setup? But you can use

yum clean all

To clear out the yum cache. The reason for the 404 is in fact that file does not exist.
