I have the same problem. This is what i do to solve it.

edit /etc/hosts, add the following hosts          mirrors.fedoraproject.org            download.fedoraproject.org          download.fedora.redhat.com

use baseurl instead of mirrorlist repos.

BUT, when upgrade complete, i can not reboot or bootup
