yum update error: Metadata file does not match checksum Trying other mirror.

If you get the error below:

http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/latest/x86_64/repodata/filelists.xml.gz: [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.
public_ol6_latest/primary                                |  39 MB     01:48
http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/latest/x86_64/repodata/primary.xml.gz: [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from public_ol6_latest: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Do not panic 🙂 Fix is simple, just:

1) Include http_caching=none in your /etc/yum.conf file
2) run yum clean metadata then
3) yum update
