I'm using Fedora 20 and trying to install flash (among other things) onto my computer (because the html5 player won't load and I can't force it). I am following all of the commands here and all I get is this:

[jdorsey@localhost ~]$ sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
[sudo] password for jdorsey: 
[jdorsey@localhost ~]$ sudo yum install flash-plugin -y
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
adobe-linux-x86_64                                       |  951 B     00:00     
eich-tee-tee-pee-es://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/vim-common/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 500 - Internal Server Error
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from apps.fedoraproject.org_packages_vim-common: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
eich-tee-tee-pee-es://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/vim-common/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 500 - Internal Server Error

It has happened with most other applications that I tried to install. Since my karma is not high enough to post links, so I've replaced https with eich-tee-tee-pee-es.

Additionally, is there a way to get the window headers not to be so obnoxiously huge?

Why does yum think there is a repo at https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/vim-common/ ? If you find that out, you'll probably solve your problem. One of your repo definitions is probably pointing to it; grep vim-common /etc/yum.repos.d/* will probably help.

[jdorsey@localhost ~]$ rpm -gV fedora-release
group fedora-release does not contain any packages

And I'm not really sure what you mean by that first question, so here's my fedora.repo file:

[fedora]

This is confusing, can you update your question instead of posting an answer?

Could you check if fedora repo files in /etc/yum.repo.d are correct and pointing to the right servers (to mirror list).

This command should help detecting if repos file were modified: rpm -qV fedora-release
