Like the message said, verify the path... just stick it in a browser on your machine. you might have DNS issues locally. Certainly nothing to do with mysql in the slightest, barely even Yum related.

Error in itself tells you. F8 is an old distribution and there are chances repositories have been taken down. Upgrading to newer F13 may solve your problems. And if you still want to keep with oldie, you can install it from source.
