I con't see how a proxy server is affecting this unless it is at my ISP.

There is no proxy server for my system. My browser is configured to 
connect directly to the Internet. It goes to
a Linksys firewall router set up for NAT, which then goes to a Cisco 
ADSL router as a straight connection to my ISP.

$file yum-2.0.4-2.noarch.rpm
yum-2.0.4-2.noarch.rpm: data
$less yum-2.0.4-2.noarch.rpm
yum-2.0.4-2.noarch.rpm: not an rpm package (or package manifest):
