Since you are tracing the packets, you can look at the DNS request for mirrorlist and see what IP is being returned by your nameserver. I'm not
how you conclude that the mirrorlist "is not interpreted" whatever that

DNS properly, or whatever. Run tcpdump with the -n option and see what IP
get back.

Thanks for your response.
By "not interpreted" I meant that the packets all went to and from
fedoraproject.org , rather than any mirror.

This could be anything, either that the mirrors list is still being read, or that there are machines at fedoraproject.org which are on the mirrors list, and you got to use one of them.

I'll see what tcpdump -n tells me, as you suggest.
The main problem with tcpdump is that there are millions of packets
from the rest of the family using the same WiFi access point.

Run tcpdump to (a) write to a file, (b) save a few more bytes than the default so you can see long strings (maybe 150?), and (c) filter the packets grabbed, probably by MAC address of the machine you're using.

If it still isn't clear, you can look at the captured packets with wireshark, which David also suggested.

I suspect your DNS, but please provide more information. Those lines work
for FC{9,10,11} so I believe there's something broken at your end.

I'm sure you are right.
I tried changing the servers in /etc/resolv.conf , but that made no difference.
