In above baseurl you did something that won't work. The baseurl= parameter
must point to a location, which contains a "repodata" directory. Yum expects
to find the repository metadata files in there and appends repodata/repomd.xml
to the baseurl path prior to trying to download the repository index file.

For Yum-based distribution upgrades (e.g. from FC5 to F10) you need to
adjust all relevant baseurl parameters to point to valid locations
for the target distribution. Typically one upgrades the "fedora-release"
manually, so one can keep pristine repository definition files and rely
on the $releasever variable to expand to "10" automatically.
