Pidgin repositories hadn't actually had the repodata updated for
versions 2.5.6 or 2.5.7, due to problems with the way the packages
themselves are hosted on sourceforge and some change at sourceforge that
would have broken any attempted download.

I have now implemented a workaround for this breakage and updated the
repodata - you should be able to update now.
