Hello guys please help.

Control Center are not working for me. As suggested by mpajoh, I tried. But i didn't work.

Kindly help so that i can enjoy working on Fedora 19 as I enjoyed it on Fedora 18.

I've already requested you to please ask specific questions @gaurav-dighe. Your control center problem is completely unrelated to the yum meta data error. Please read the forum guidelines: wiki:Ask_fedora_guidelines

yum clean metadata

Please open a separate, more detailed question for your issue launching applications.

Have you tried "yum clean all" before "yum update"? This may help.

Also have you done "yum distro-sync" since installing F19? If not, do that then examine the results before continuing?

Good luck

I tried it. But still the Settings(control-center) is not responsive. It takes quite a time, trying to execute, but it doesnot executes.
