yum update always seems to fail, and I can't seem to install anything D:


I've been getting errno 256 no matter what I do--I can't update yum and I can't install google chrome and I can't seem to install anything else either because there seems to be an issue with the mirrors.
I'm wondering if there's an issue with the repositories but I don't want to go blindly messing around with the files yet.
Also, I'm VERY new to linux so I'm not sure what info I need to provide U^_^ And I can't find any other solutions online either, as I've tried just about any I could get my hands on.

I get this no matter what I do:

Code:
$ sudo yum update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
http://dk.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#6 - "Couldn't resolve host"
Trying other mirror.
http://dk.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#6 - "Couldn't resolve host"
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from google: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Trying to install chrome:

Code:
$ sudo yum install google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
http://dk.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#6 - "Couldn't resolve host"
Trying other mirror.
http://dk.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#6 - "Couldn't resolve host"
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from google: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Trying to install another program (dropbox)

Code:
$ sudo yum install nautilus-dropbox-1.4.0-1.fedora.x86_64.rpm
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
http://dk.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#6 - "Couldn't resolve host"
Trying other mirror.

The only program I've been able to install so far is called autoplus, which was apparently supposed to make it easier to install programs, but it didn't help.

When I try to install using yumex, it always comes down to the same thing--something about using the command yumex -n and disabling the repositories that cause the conflict. But I'm not really sure which one that is either.

I'm a little vexed right now, so I'd appreciate any help I can get. I've read as much documentation as I could understand given my complete lack of knowledge on linux, but...U^_^

Hmm, uninstall the chrome repo file, that dk.google.com domain doesn't seem to exist any more.

Did you not read the message and try to resolve dk.google.com yourself?

Yeah, but not knowing how to go about it--or even what exactly is the problem--makes it a bit difficult to search for the answers. I've been trying to fix it myself for pretty much the whole afternoon and evening with little sucess, thus I turn to this forum before I botch things up even more
Haha, I'm pretty much still at the level where what is simple to most linux users seem intimidating and difficult for me XD
Anyway, thanks! I'll try doing that.
