YUM has been installed by rpm. Clean Install. Version 2.0.6-1

Yes I can reach both sites in yum.conf file from web browser
I have tried other yum.conf from
http://www.linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/repos/  but also got same error

this is my current yum.conf

(See attached file: yum.conf)

I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide.I have a colleague who
succesfully runs yum updates and his config is no different from mine ( he
is however running an earlier version...but I'm sure that is not the issue

can you get that file via your web browser?

Is there a proxy (transparent or otherwise) in the way?
