I think you want to try using a different repository besides the one at fedora.redhat.com.  Theirs is the default that is set when you install the OS.  Therefore, it's so heavily used that all kinds of anomalous errors happen all the time.  Try pointing your yum.conf to a different mirror... preferrably one that is closer to your geographical location.

Mirrors aplenty...
