Are you using Network Manager, and if so is NM managing your interface?
If NM is running but not managing the interface, it thinks you aren't
connected even when you are, and some Gnome apps believe it (Evolution
is one and I'm guessing PackageKit is another).

"yum" doesn't pay any attention to this, so it's not affected.
