How to install the VLC player on Acer aspire one running linpus lite

I mounted the usb stick,that has vlc exe file, on the notebook

I went to terminal and on root typed this: yum install vlc to install the VLC player.Then it showed this when I was not connected to the net: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
Trying other mirror. [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
Trying other mirror. [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>

Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again
[root@localhost user]#

I connected to the net and typed : yum install vlc.This time it showed this:
