Welcome to ask.fedora. Fedora 20 is well past its End Of Life (The oldest version currently supported is F 22.) and it's possible that the mirror you're trying to reach is offline. You may be able to correct this by running yum clean all before trying again, but in the long run, you'll be better off upgrading to either F 22 or 23.

Web pages ( ) says that string DISTRIBUTION should be substitute with one of following: fc/22, fc/23, el/6, el/7. Change the baseurl in your repo configuration to the following one and give it a try again:$releasever/$releasever/

Thanks to sideburns I just noted it is tagged to F20. There are no packages for F20 anymore. Packages are available for F22 and F23 only:

How to update the repo configuration file or how to upgrade Fedora? Btw. just to be sure, which version of Fedora do you run cat /etc/fedora-release?

If you are running Fedora 20, then even updating repo to fc/22 or fc/23 might not work as expected, since packages in those repos are for Fedora 22 and Fedora23. You would need to upgrade your Fedora to one of those releases first.

Btw. tor delivered from Fedora repo is not enough? If you would upgrade Fedora to 22 or 23, there is latest tor version ( available in Fedora repos (no need to have additional repo to get it).
