You don't have a Fedora Core Base repo entry (eg: the meat of it).  Most 
likely those packages are contained there, and yum can't find them 
because you haven't told yum  where to look.

If you look at your updates line in /etc/yum.conf at the same place in a 
different directory there should be the Base distro. Most likely the path 
will be something like this:
