Hi Adam,

you must have enabled only one repo at a time among these 2 - 
fedora.repo + fedora-updates-testing.repo OR fedora-rawhide.repo ?
What I know is if we need F21 disable the Rawhide repository and enable 
the regular Fedora repositories + enable updates-testing AND
for F22 enable fedora-rawhide.repo.
