I also tried to run VLC thinking livna is installed but failed. I could not find VLC nor run it in any way!!

Please help me out... I want to switch over to linux from windows.

Is your Internet connection ok? The errors indicate your computer could not reach the fedora repository ... could just be a temporary thing on your side, have you tried again? Can you browse to http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org in a browser from your Linux machine?
