Can't Install RPMFusion Repositories

Good day all:

After several weeks now, I've been trying to install RPMFusion-free and non-free repositories with no success at all.

I've read many of the forum threads and "googled" for a viable solution and still can't find a proper solution to this issue.

Without this repository, I can't install VLC and many other codecs and apps that I really need.

So far, this is the error I'm getting:


[root@Y-PC Downloads]# sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http//download1-rpmfusion-org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable-noarch.rpm http//download1-rpmfusion-org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable-noarch.rpm

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

Cannot open: http//download1-rpmfusion-org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable-noarch.rpm. Skipping.

Cannot open: http//download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm. Skipping.

Nothing to do

Even if I download the repository directly to my PC and run "yum localinstall", this is what I get:


[root@Y-PC Downloads]# yum localinstall rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

Everything seems to be nice and dandy from here, but...

Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: rpmfusion-free

In order to get updates as I used before, I have to disable this repo.

I'm really clueless about this issue. I've even reported this incident 2 weeks on a different thread and didn't got a reply.

Hope someone can guide/help me with this particular problem.

Thanks in advance.

P.S: I had to edit the URLs due to some restrictions on the number of links allowed to post
