Yum and x86_64?

I'm still getting used to this "yum" thing...in general I find it quite
slow when compared with apt, but functional.
I do often get problems like this, though:
# yum update perl
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1.91 - Development Tree
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
I will do the following:
[update: perl 3:5.8.3-17.x86_64]
Is this ok [y/N]:
After I agree, I (eventually) get a pile of those "retrygrab() failed for:"
messages that seem to be so common.
So, I'm curious: am I just running into mirror problems, or does the x86_64
repository often go out of sync with its associated headers?
FWIW, my yum.conf has this, currently:
name=Fedora Core $releasever - Development Tree
Executive editor, LWN.net
corbet at lwn.net
