when trying to update or install anything with yum i recieve many pages of "errno 14" "http error 416" errors and trying other mirror responses [see sample below]... ive tried yum clean all and presto does clean up 44 metafiles the first time...then i try updating again and recieve the same respponses...try clean all again presto cleans 0...so i do a frech reinstall...only to find the same thing happening again...the disk i am installing from a had installed without these problems three times before [because i tried kde, xfce, lxde, and ubuntu, centos, only to come back to gnome3 and now i like it very much] could my ip be blocklisted because i kept downloading updates over and over

sample resonse on update i cant paste the whole thing it is too long but at the end it says i give up no more mirrors to try:
