The simple way is to just grab the fedora-release package and re-install it. yum config-manager should work as well. You don't seem to be using it correctly.

try: yum config-manager --enable fedora etc., i.e., provide an argument to the command.

The last option is to manually edit the repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ and change enabled=0 to enabled=1. Read man yum.conf for more information.

Fedora 23, 24, 25 and future

Enable repositories

dnf -y config-manager --set-enabled foo_repository

Disable repositories

dnf -y config-manager --set-disabled foo_repository

The easiest way I've found so far is to enable and disable repos through fedorautils. You just check and uncheck any repos you want any time and I've never screwed up so far.
