    loading "installonlyn" plugin
    setting up update process
    setting up repositories
    could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=...
    repo =extra error was [errno 4] urlopen error (-3, temporary failure in name resolution )
    Error: cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
