It may be that the repository is down or experiencing other problems. Just noticed that yum cannot read DAG or find the xml file...

No, nothing seems as bad :)
Your installer (yum) tries to connect to online repositories to download the software you ask to install. If one of those repositories is not available at the moment, it will complain like that :
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: <repository_name>
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from <repository_name>: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try
