        Yes you get 404 if you try to access it using your browser. This is just Google’s style to configure their servers, you can only access files what you really need, maybe there is not even any real files or directories. Like http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml could be just alias to some script which generate it and everything works normally with dnf/yum, and even with browser, if you know what you are looking for.

      You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
      You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest

    4. Download with YUM was successful in getting Chrome installed on Fedora 29. Now, I can get my classes to work with video and audio to synchronize correctly on this old laptop Compaq – CQ50 with celeron CPU Intel inside and 2.9 GB RAM. Firefox browser has to many bugs in it as of this writing. Google Chrome is becoming a better Browser these days and the developers get better raises then other companies.

      • Hi Steven,

        Sorry, but you are wrong (at least currently). Actually Google use here http url and yes it works totally fine with dnf and yum.

        Just checked Google’s RPM and their own cron script produces exactly same repo file with http:

        ...
        REPOCONFIG="http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable"
        ...
        DEFAULT_ARCH="x86_64"
        YUM_REPO_FILE="/etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo"
        ZYPPER_REPO_FILE="/etc/zypp/repos.d/google-chrome.repo"
        URPMI_REPO_FILE="/etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg"
        
        install_yum() {
          install_rpm_key
        
          if [ ! "$REPOCONFIG" ]; then
            return 0
          fi
        
          if [ -d "/etc/yum.repos.d" ]; then
        cat > "$YUM_REPO_FILE" < < REPOCONTENT
        [google-chrome]
        name=google-chrome
        baseurl=$REPOCONFIG/$DEFAULT_ARCH
        enabled=1
        gpgcheck=1
        gpgkey=https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
        REPOCONTENT
          fi
        }
        

        It uses http version, not https!

        And if you run following commands with http version, then you see that it's working normally:

        cat /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo 
        [google-chrome]
        name=google-chrome
        baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64
        enabled=1
        gpgcheck=1
        gpgkey=https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
        
        dnf clean --repo google-chrome all
        5 files removed
        
        dnf update --repo google-chrome --refresh
        google-chrome                                   1.6 kB/s | 3.4 kB     00:02    
        Dependencies resolved.
        Nothing to do.
        Complete!
