I would be so grateful for any help at all.

Thank you - Bigmac :confused:

Hello:
The first thing I would do is remove the fastestmirror plugin. I think it causes more problems than solutions. However, it's up to you.
yum remove yum-fastestmirror
then
yum clean all
and see if the results are any better.
The results could also be due to mirrors syncing, busy or down for the moment.

Hi Seve,
Thank you that was the problem. I still can't believe it? The moment I removed "fastest mirror" BOOM. I had no problems.
Thank you so much!
