Yum update error: “can’t start new thread”

Posted: April 28, 2011 by Hacking & Relax in Linux

Fix:

You could try to disable fastestmirror plugin and check if after that change yum will be working properly. To disable it do: edit /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/fastestmirror.conf and changeenabled = 1 to 0 or just remove plugin package: yum remove yum-fastestmirror or yum install yum-plugin-fastestmirror.
