I believe rpm only knows about packages available locally. You either need
to have the packages installed or a local mirror. (You can use urls to
refer to remote packages with rpm, but that isn't likely to be workable.)
If you have a local mirror you can use the p option and name the rpms.

Otherwise yum is probably a better choice for this, since it can use meta
data to get information. One of the yum utilities may be better than yum
itself, but I am not sure offhand.
