    It could be that the mirrors you are trying to use are busy ("too many connected users" should give you a clue). Try editing your /etc/yum.conf (after backing it up first) and then hard code that you know to work well (change the section labelled "baseurl"). You can use this file as a guide. A list of Fedora mirrors is available here.
