Topic: Cannot download metadata for repo

yum update
Updating Subscription Management repositories.
Remi repo for current PHP & PHP cryptography                                                              117  B/s | 196  B     00:01   
Errors during downloading metadata for repository 'remirepo':
  - Status code: 404 for [url]https://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/8/repodata/repomd.xml[/url] (IP: 109.238.14.107)
Error: Failed to download metadata for repo 'remirepo': Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried

That was working fine for the last ten days or so, what may have caused this, and how do I get it to work again?

Looks like a manually created repo file, thus with bad configuration

For a proper configuration, follow the wizard instructions

Desktop: Fedora 33 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 32 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)

Well actually that came from a "rpm -ivh ... enterprise/remi-release-8.rpm" ... I hadn't manually futzed w/ the file.

Anyway, I just re-ran that as

rpm -ivh --reinstall ... 

and it seems to be working again....
