As I said before there is nothing wrong with your system. Yum is
working properly. Your yum settings, however, are dependent upon the
use of a list of mirrors (mirrorlist). Obviously, where you are
located the mirrors selected are not communicating reliably with your
system. The quick fix is to edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo
like so:

$cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-extras.repo
[extras]
name=Fedora Extras $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/$releasever/$basearch/
#mirrorlist=http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors/fedora-extras-$releasever
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras
gpgcheck=1

[snip]

Notice that I removed the "#" in front of "baseurl" and added one in
front of "mirrorlist". This connects you to the main Extras server and
should work for you. It may be slow because of heavy traffic. If you
need a faster mirror go to
http://fedora.redhat.com/Download/mirrors.html and select one. Visit
the site using your web browser to get the URL specifics for the FC5
update files.


I forgot: Do the same for /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo.

All of this will be for naught if your internet connection is the
pits. How are your systems attached to the internet? Test your
broadband connection at http://www.dslreports.com/stest
