Hi

The best advice I can give to you is to try another repository - since this is an indication that the repository you're using hasn't synced properly.

There's not much else you can do to solve the problem

please post your epl.repo file
or compare it to my default file
Code:
[epel]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 5 - $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/$basearch
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-5&arch=$basearch
failovermethod=priority
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL

[epel-debuginfo]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 5 - $basearch - Debug
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/$basearch/debug
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-debug-5&arch=$basearch
failovermethod=priority
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL
gpgcheck=1

[epel-source]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 5 - $basearch - Source
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/SRPMS
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-source-5&arch=$basearch
failovermethod=priority
enabled=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL
gpgcheck=1
the mirror list SHOULD be this
" http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-debug-5&arch=$basearch"
for the default fedora epel

with centOS i do this first ( when i have a yum issue)
it "fixes" it most of the time -- but not 100% of the time

Code:
su -
-- your root password --
yum clean all 
rpm --rebuilddb 
yum update
if that dose not, then there might be a repo conflict can you post the output of this command
Code:
yum repolist all

that is a very odd out put for " yum repolist all"
it should be just a list of installed repos that are turned on and turned off .

try running
Code:
rpm --rebuilddb
first
then run yum clean all
yum update

well if this command is not working
yum repolist all

and not giving a list but a yum server time out
( that command should not do that)
then there is sometinng very,very with the setup


just how did you " i installed the4 epel repository"
from the instructions here ?
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories
did you install the centOS 4.? repo???????
and not the cent 5.? repo?

fix it ????
well if your epel repo is 100% the same and is looking for the file lists from the SAME mirror
Quote:
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/$basearch
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-5&arch=$basearch
as me ( not the baseurl but mirrorlist)
then you should NOT be getting those time outs


what other repos are turned on and installed

seeing as the normal command for this dose not work you will need to do this by hand

READ yes open and read EVERY file is /etc/yum.repos.d
and list EVERY one that has a " enabled=1"
also a list of every file there will also help

somehow you furab'ed yum

I've been having the same problem with the EPEL repository. Googled around for it and finally found a posted solution here. (At least for the short term until the mirrors are working again.)
