in my case those are only very rarely hard errors, yum tries one or a few 
more mirrors and continues so maybe not everyone notices.
But the errors are very frequent recently, seems like for every package 
that is to be updated yum tries a list of known bad mirrors before 
getting it from some other mirror.

In part I blame yum - when updating 50 packages in one transaction and
a single mirror fails more than once it is silly to retry this very
mirror over and over for all other packages.

But something also seems wrong with the mirror configuration here.
