Getting Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'fedora-modular'

I will start from the beginning. First I downloaded Fedora-Server-dvd-x86_64-28-1.1.iso image from Fedora. After that was finished I used Rufus 2.7.855 to create a bootable usb for Fedora Server 28.

After Rufus was finished creating my live usb I went and installed Fedora Server 28 on my machine.

After installing I was going to install updates/upgrades and the following is what I kept getting.

[root@localhost ~]# dnf upgrade
Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'fedora-modular'
[root@localhost ~]# dnf update
Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'fedora-modular'
[root@localhost ~]# dnf clean all
0 files removed
[root@localhost ~]# dnf update
Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'fedora-modular'
[root@localhost ~]#

I don't even know where to begin at correcting this issue since it is basically something that happened out of the box, so to speak.

The following is what I did after posting the above information.

[root@localhost ~]# ping google.com
ping: google.com: Name or service not known
[root@localhost ~]# ping www.google.com
ping: www.google.com: Name or service not known
[root@localhost ~]# ping 10.0.0.133

It seems like you aren't connected to the Internet. Let's get you connected using Fedora's wiki on CLI networking. (Considering that you'd probably connect to WiFi)

  1. Get wifi status: nmcli radio wifi
  2. Turn wifi off or on: nmcli radio wifi <on|off>
  3. List available access points(AP) to connect to: nmcli device wifi list
  4. Create a new connection to an open AP: nmcli device wifi connect <SSID|BSSID>
  5. Create a new connection to a password protected AP:nmcli device wifi connect <SSID|BSSID> password <password>
