can't be for sure but it looks like someone has mucked up a couple of lines in the binary installers that you are downloading. did this start happening or is this the first time you have ran yum?

was this before or after you logged out and logged back in ( or rebooted)

did you by chance turn on the " rawhide" repo ( that is fedora 11 alpha)
if so turn it off
to see what in on and off run
--
yum repolist all
--
also try this
Code:
yum clean all
rpm --rebuilddb 
yum update
