I solved this problem, but encountered another... Here is the story, saga which continues!

Done the following as root/supeuser:

Masked "#mirrorlist=" and unmasked "baseurl=" in '/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo' '/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo'

yum clean all

yum repolist

cd /var/lib/rpm 

rm -f __db* 

rpm --rebuilddb 

yum repolist  

[root@localhost rpm]# yum check-update
