Yum, Yumex problem

Fc7, x86_64.
Try to run run yumex and can't find any repo's, this is just one example of
all the repo's it can't find:

Failure getting
15:41:12 : --> [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum

This is as far as it will go,stops here :failure: repodata/comps-f7.xml from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Yum on the command line updates, install, remove with no errors.
I have run "yum clean all" (without quotes) .

pirut, it won't run, if I do a yum clean all from Yumex, this a error message about pirut:

Component: pirut
