cannot install new packages or update software

Hey guys, i was wondering if any of you could help me. I install fedora 11 with no problem but as soon as i try to install new software using add/remove software or software packages or in terminal i get the same error saying

Below is the popup window i receive when i search for new software
No package cache is available

The package list needs to be rebuilt
This should have been done by the backend automatically

More details:
Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for
repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again.

in terminal when i try yum update i get this:

Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for
repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again.
