I already have chrome installed in fedora 21, but also wanted to install chromium also, but there is an error:

sudo yum -y install chromium

I prefer install from COPR


dnf -y copr enable churchyard/chromium-russianfedora && dnf -y install chromium

You have two options:

1) Install disabling GPG check:

sudo yum -y install chromium --nogpgcheck

2) Import the missing GPG key:

rpm --import

Hope it help you!

Disabling GPG check is a bad idea. Importing spot.gpg will do the job.
