RE: I cannot install vsftp

It looks like that mirror is down. run 'yum clean all' and try again. That should get you a new "fastest" mirror to pull from.

Then you need to verify your /etc/resolv.conf is pointing to the correct named servers. You will need to consult with your network admins or ISP for the correct ones.
