Most likely your yum.conf is pointing to the wrong placei or the repos
are simply unavailable. If you paste the url for the repo(s) in yum.conf
into a web browser do you see the headers, etc.?

If not you must fix that for things to work.

configuration problem. It is telling you it cannot find the repo(s).
