Fedora 14 and earlier (your repos are for Fedora 13) are no longer supported. If you want new packages upgdrade to Fedora 15 or 16.

PS: try to check you question and change it to readable text :)

Fedora releases no longer supported can still be found here:

So while not encouraged to do so, you can install packages from there, and if you really want, you can make a repo file that basically looks like this:

name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch

If you drop this file in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-archives.repo, yum should find packages again.

I would like to share my experience here as I was struggling to install fedora 14 x86_64 since two days. It was not even letting me go through the complete installation setup as the installation of fedora 14 requires active internet connection for repomd.xml. The following link doesn't work s/ Instead I used (uncheck "it's a mirror" option) and it worked. Same link for packages update
