the yum grouplist/groupupdate/groupinstall (etc.) commands will only
work if there is a yumgroups.xml file setup in the repository you are using.
If your /etc/yum.conf is only pointing to the FL base/updates directories,
then you will not see any groups because there are none configured there.

I think you have to refresh or update your YUM repositories ( list of servers and sources)
