Yeah, try another mirror or wait.
The servers are overloaded.
Partly because not all the mirrors have the kernel updates yet.
If you don't want to wait,
what I do with fou4s is run it in interactive mode.
"fou4s -i --interactive"
I also open up:
so I can watch the "rpm" download onto my box.
I have also reconfigured fou4s so as it downloads it give
me a progress bar... (see /etc/fou4s.conf)
but tonite, as I said, I think everybody is trying
to update their kernels the servers are just overloaded.
At least that's my take.
