Hi,

I am not expert in this but similar to my problem I suspect it must be
the network settings problem. This is what exactly happened when I
tried to update after fresh fedora 10 and later found out that my
subnetmask is reset to 192.168.1.1. (especially if you used
system-config-network tools).

Anyway check your /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0 (or
other cards) to see something is wrong there.

Probably it has nothing to do with yum or repos

Hope this helps
