failed updates

Just tried to update my Fedora 19 with yum check-update. It seems
every mirror has a problem: 
[Errno -1] repomd.xml does not match metalink for updates
Trying other mirror. 
[Errno 14] curl#7 - "Failed to connect to 2607:f1f0:1:3::2: Network is 
Trying other mirror.

  One of the configured repositories failed (Fedora 19 - i386 - Updates),
  and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the 
  safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

      1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the 

      2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a 
         upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
         distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
         packages for the previous distribution release still work).

      3. Disable the repository, so yum won't use it by default. Yum 
will then
         just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it 
again or use
         --enablerepo for temporary usage:

             yum-config-manager --disable updates

      4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is 
         Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most 
         so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be 
be much
         slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is 
often a nice

             yum-config-manager --save 

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors 
to try. 
[Errno -1] repomd.xml does not match metalink for updates

Is this temporary or should I do what Yum suggests ??
