That sounds like a internet connection issue or network down.

I second @aeperezt's comment. If you're using WiFi and you're not sure if you're connected to the internet, run lspci | grep Broadcom. If it returns some output then you will need to install Broadcom wireless drivers. For information on how to do this see this previous answer of mine.

Actually I am using a proxy connection and I am using Ethernet.

Did you try to add rpmfusion repo via package manager? There is a "graphical setup via Firefox" option that should help...
