No longer necessary - after the updates were installed I wanted to check 
something which required a reboot.  After the reboot the fedora repos all 
work!  Something obviously is fixed.  Oh yes, and by the way, my keyboard is 
now fixed as well - all the navigation keys now work.

In fact the only thing left not working is the gpg-key for 
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates.
