You probably have [updates-released] & [base] specified in
/etc/yum.conf - hence its a duplicate (the other occurances are in
/etc/yum.repo.d/fedora.repo & fedora-updates.repo)

To fix - remove the duplicate entries from /etc/yum.conf

the 'baseurl' for '[livna-stable]' entry must be wrong. Check it out
in a web-broswer - and verify if its valid.
