Hi Jonathon,

This is quick trick to remove all packages from yum repository:

yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo=google-chrome list available |grep "google-chrome" |awk -F ' ' '{print $1}' |xargs yum -y remove

Run first without |xargs yum -y remove to see what is really happening…and be careful anyway, as always with delete/remove commands :)

Thank you very much for your very clear illustrations and instructions. You certainly helped me to restore updates to Fedora20. On August 01st 2014, I had tried installing an image editor, but the installation failed and subsequently prevented Fedora20 from accessing updates. I searched the web for help but found nothing that worked until I found your excellent article today. Thanks very much again. “Much of the good things in life are indeed free”
