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.
That is:

   "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.

Hoe this helps,
