Your internet connection might have been down (unlikely since you posted this note), or (since $s is empty), your repository definition in /etc/yum.repros.d are incorrect.

Go to the Fedora web site for information about setting up your repository definitions.

There is a problem with the PackageKit Gui, nothing wrong with your repos.
Do as root from terminal
yum update
and you should be able to update successfully.

Ah, my bad I didn't notice that he was using the package kit. I always turn it off as soon as I install a new Fedora because it seems to fail more often that not.

The yumex application is a nice GUI front-end to YUM if you like to use a GUI. Lots fewer problems that the "package kit" stuff. (Also, consider installing the smart package manager. It doesn't use the yum system, or the rpm installer, so it is handy to have when yum locks up, which does occasionally happen. [Of course, if you install the yum-utilities package, you'll get several tools for fixing yum problems. It's also worth installing.])
