[Yum] yum v2.4.1 problem

I am having a strange problem with yum on one of my fedora core 4 boxes. 
  When I try to update my box with yum I encounter the following error.

# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released

The first thing I checked was the network settings on the box.  All is 
well there for example the command "host download.fedora.redhat.com" 
works just fine.  There are 20 other identically configured FC4 boxes on 
this same network and they can all update via yum currently.

I have been over the config files with a fine tooth comb but yum.conf 
and my various yum.repos files are identical to those of working boxes. 
They are also unmodified standard FC4 yum config files.

I tried "yum clean all" but that didn't help either.

I'm pretty stumped here.  Thanks in advance for any light you can shed 
on this subject.
