Perhaps the server is down?
Perhaps your connection went down?
What happens when you retry?

Hi, I am going to take a guess that in Fedora 10, it's just using YUM so it's going off to /etc/yum.repos.d/ and probably to a file with a name like Fedore-Base.repo or something similar. Two main things come to mind that could be wrong, you computer is not able to reach the servers listed in the Fedora-Base file or your computer has the DVD/CD drive listed as a repository and is failing because it's expecting to see something their.

For the first you can ping the servers listed in base.repo to see if you can connect. If their is an issue here this may need looking into the network configuration of the machine.

For the DVD/CD check the alternative repository file probably called Fedora-Media.repo, check for the enabled line, this should be set to 0, if it's set to 1, change it to 0 and save, this should fix the problem.
