Disable the spot / chromium repository temporarily.

yum --disablerepo=fedora-chromium-stable update

Disable the spot /chromium repository permanently.

sed -i 's/enabled=1/enabled=0/g' /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-chromium-stable.repo

Remove the repository entirely.

rm -f /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-chromium-stable.repo

There is no spot / chromium-stable repository for Fedora 20.

In addition to the nonexistent chromium repository you seem to have a configuration file for a repository called "updates-newkey". That was a temporary solution for a particular old Fedora version and should not be used anymore.

Tom 'spot' Callaway, Manager of the Fedora Engineering team at Red Hat is working with Google to fix the problems in Chromium so that it can be made available in the official repository. He also maintains his own test packages of Chromium
