There is no problem here. That output showed that one of the repository mirrors failed to respond, so another was tried. It completed the update, and there were no changes. This output is normal when you're already up-to-date.

Note, you do not need a Red Hat subscription for Fedora. You may need that if you're using RedHat Enterprise, but Fedora is completely free.

I've never seen that message before

I've not seen that statement before, either, but it's possible that RedHat are allowing Fedora users to register. But you definitely don't need one to use the OS.

Somehow, it appears you have the subscription-manager package installed. That package is used (as far as I know) only for clients who have Red Hat subscriptions providing access to their repositories. If you're using Fedora 21, I don't know why that would be installed (aside from development purposes, perhaps?). If you have no use for this functionality (and I assume you do not), try removing the subscription-manager package with sudo yum erase subscription-manager and see if the warning goes away.

hi bitwiseoperator,commad sudo yum erase subscription-manager cannot remove it, terminal output-

[root@localhost ~]# yum erase subscription-manager Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, fs-snapshot, langpacks, product-id, subscription- : manager This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register. No Match for argument: subscription-manager No Packages marked for removal

thanks.

Ok, so the issue is stemming from the fact that you have the subscription-manager yum plugin installed. I don't know how that happened if you don't have the subscription-manager RPM package on your system, but you can either remove the plugin entirely by removing /usr/lib/yum-plugins/subscription-manager.py* or you can edit /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/subscription-manager.conf and change the line "enabled=1" to "enabled=0" to prevent the plugin from being used. I have absolutely no idea how you got that thing on your system. Do you have any idea?
