I was getting an odd error whenever I tried to use yum.
I checked my /etc/yum.repos.d/ folder and there were no ‘dag’ entries.

[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# yum list php\*
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
http://apt.sw.be/fedora/18/en/i386/dag/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found"
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dag: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
http://apt.sw.be/fedora/18/en/i386/dag/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found"

I ignored it at first but eventually updates started failing and Yum wasn’t finding software I knew existed in the repos.
The solution was that the dag repo was listed in my /etc/yum.conf

I removed that and ran a

sudo yum clean all

and everything was fine again!
