Well, the problem seems to be that your machine is not accepting the
ssl cert for the fedoraproject web server: 

* warning: ignoring unsupported value (1) of ssl.verifyhost
*   CAfile: /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
  CApath: none
* Certificate is signed by an untrusted issuer: 'CN=GeoTrust SSL 
CA,O="GeoTrust, Inc.",C=US'
* NSS error -8172

It should out of the box, so something is weird here. 

What does: 

rpm -q ca-certificates
rpm -V ca-certificates 

What fedora version is this?
