In your terminal, enter dnf repolist or yum repolist enabled to list your repos. Here is the input :

Last metadata expiration check performed 2 days, 8:08:05 ago on Sun Jul 19 15:10:02 2015.
repo id                        repo name
adobe-linux-x86_64             Adobe Systems Incorporated
*fedora                        Fedora 22 - x86_64
fedora-HandBrake               Open source multiplatform video transcoder
rpmfusion-free                 RPM Fusion for Fedora 22 - Free
rpmfusion-free-updates         RPM Fusion for Fedora 22 - Free - Updates
rpmfusion-nonfree              RPM Fusion for Fedora 22 - Nonfree
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates      RPM Fusion for Fedora 22 - Nonfree - Updates
*updates                       Fedora 22 - x86_64 - Updates

If you don't have the RPMFusion repo (mp3...), add it : here for the instructions. You should have the Fedora repos, if not, add it too.

If your Fedora repos are disabled, check them sudo cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo |grep enabled and sudo cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo |grep enabled the first line should be enabled=1

Slight modification to the above. verify repositories exist via dnf repolist. If nothing, add Fedora repos before doing anything else. Upgrade before adding Rpmfusion.

grep -r enabled /etc/yum.repos.d

Then #dnf clean metadata and finally dnf check-update.
