What does "retrygrab() failed for ..." mean?

I have a cron job that normally runs in the wee hours of the morning to
check for updates.  For a while now it has been complaining:

[root at osage log]# yum check-update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Mandrake Linux 9.2 - Base
Server: Mandrake 9.2 - Contribs
Server: Mandrake Linux 9.2 - Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
retrygrab() failed for:
  Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file
[Errno 7] HTTP Error (CannotSendRequest): 

Does this indicate a problem in yum, my configuration, or at the mirror?
