Always read the error message closely. This will give you the hint(s) for debugging the problem.
Regarding your errormessage, pay attention to the text 'Temporary failure in name resolution'. The name (mirrors.fedoraproject.org) can't be resolved. Does the machine have a correct working internet connection?
What does the command $ ping mirrors.fedoraproject.org return?

Ok, so there must be a problem in resolving the DNS name to an IP address.
I did a nslookup on mirrors.fedoraproject.org and got the following:
Code:
 Non-authoritative answer:
 mirrors.fedoraproject.org	canonical name = wildcard.fedoraproject.org.
 Name:	wildcard.fedoraproject.org
 Address: 66.35.62.166
 Name:	wildcard.fedoraproject.org
 Address: 80.239.156.215
 Name:	wildcard.fedoraproject.org
 Address: 152.46.7.222
 Name:	wildcard.fedoraproject.org
 Address: 209.132.176.120
Try the following: add an entry for mirrors.fedoraproject.org in your /etc/hosts file.

Code:
$ sudo vi /etc/hosts
66.35.62.166  mirrors.fedoraproject.org
Now see if your install works.
