You added the bumblebee-nonfree repo but I think you also need the bumblebee-nonfree repo. Also I don't see the bumblebee-nonfree repo in the yum install bbswitch bumblebee output you posted, which means it's disabled. What's the output of:

rpm -qa "*bumblebee*"
yum repolist

Update your original post with the output. Note that you can copy/paste the text from terminal instead of posting a screenshot.

I've never used bumblebee before but I know of this guide on the Fedora wiki.

Try following the guide in the Fedora wiki that I linked in my previous comment; basically you need both the bumblebee-free and nonfree repos added.

IIUC, the the bumblebee-nonfree repo is disabled on your system, you need to enable it, as root:

yum-config-manager --enable bumblebee-nonfree

or edit /etc/yum.repos.d/bumblebee-nonfree.repo, in the [bumblebee-nonfree] section change enabled=0 to enabled=1.

Please could you see that threat?

Fedora 20 nVidia Drivers Install / Uninstall / Restore Plymouth

Note: you know that your computer have NVIDIA Optimus Technology, and it is impossible to turn Intel Graphics / NVIDIA Optimus off in the BIOS then this guide is not working on your system.
