Try: sudo "mv /etc/yum.repos.d/fedorautils.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/fedorautils.repo.bak". Post the output of: yum clean all; yum repolist . Fedorautils is obsolete - don't use it (see https://sourceforge.net/projects/fedorautils/ )

Thanks for your comment. I reinstalled Fedora from another DVD. Problem solved.
