Are you behind proxy server? else add http_proxy=<proxy_host>:<proxy_port>, ftp_proxy and https_proxy. Or maybe you don't have connections.

You can try a few things:

  • See if you're able to _reach_ the network at all
  • Check if your proxy settings are enabled correctly
  • Check if your 'baseurl' and 'mirrorlist' in your yum.conf are conflicting
  • See if you're able to access the mirror list via curl
