what version are you seeing this failure on? Yum has a settable
'retries' option for the number of times to retry a failed or partial
connection. It only exits after the retries count is exhausted. That
number defaults to 6.

Most of the time download failures are the fault of an overloaded mirror
or a bad connection.
