If you installed Fedora 20 from a DVD the yum repository configuration files in /etc/yum.repos.d/.repo will already point to Fedora mirror sites (if you did not change these files manually). If you run "grep metalink /etc/yum.repos.d/.repo" it should provide you URLs to the mirror manager which is going to redirect to mirror sites. If not there were manual changes. Then provide one of the files as example here, please.

The command you mentioned is only useful if you have a URL like "" that you could use, this is usually only provided by third-party repositories and has some disadvantages.
