Please only post to one forum. The moderators are going to kick your ....

Try:-
Code:
yum clean all
Then re-attempt your update.

Can you show us the content of your "/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo" file?

Were the Fedora mirrors moved as a result of the Debian key fiasco? That may be the root cause.

When did you last use yum on this system?

This is what mine looks like. Try replacing yours with this (rename existing, create new, yada yada...).
Code:
[fedora]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/os/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch

[fedora-debuginfo]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Debug
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/debug/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-debug-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch

[fedora-source]
name=Fedora $releasever - Source
failovermethod=priority
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/source/SRPMS/
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-source-$releasever&arch=$basearch
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1

Can you get anything on the net?

What happens if you put "http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-9&arch=i386" into your browser? You should get a mirror list (at least it works for me).

As an experiment, for [fedora], try commenting out the mirrorlist line and uncomment the baseurl line. Only try it for this one in the first instance (since the others are enabled anyway).
