Thanks for your reply and the link, I masked "#mirrorlist=" and unmasked "baseurl=" in '/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo' '/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo' , and entered URLGRABBER_DEBUG=1 yum check-update in the shell, some problems happened as fellows:


....
* About to connect() to proxy 210.72.66.230 port 7070 (#0)
* Trying 210.72.66.230... * 拒绝连接
* couldn't connect to host
* Closing connection #0
* Couldn't connect to server.

.....
I thought I have used some proxy softwares before, but I have uninstall them, so what should I do now?
