I don't know where you get that repository from but it is not from the official repositories.

You have a few options to proceed:

  1. Disable the repository altogether by either remove the file rm /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-steam.repo, or open that file and change the value enabled=1 to enabled=0. This disables this repo forever (until you change it back).
  2. Skip the repo if it is unavailable by introducing the setting skip_if_unavailable=True into the same file. On each update, dnf will try to connect to the repo but skip it if it's not available and continue with other repos.
  3. Check why it is unavailable: I guess that you upgraded to Fedora 25 but the third-party repostory doesn't support the new version (yet). You can apply option 2 and hope for the maintainers to supply a compatible version.
  4. Or you can enforce using the old 24 version by changing the same file and replace $releasever with 24. I don't recommend this.
