[CentOS] 4.4 update quits unexpectedly

After 2 good updates to 4.4, my 3rd is giving me trouble. I did all 3 
installs the same:

yum clean all
yum update python-sqlite sqlite yum
yum clean all
yum upgrade

This one, however, quits during the header download. I get "[Errno -1] 
Header not complete, trying another mirror", then "[Errno 256] No more 
mirrors to try".

I am not going thru a proxy, and I can't find any other errors until 
these pop up. It is stopping at the same spot each time, during the 
kernel header. Following are the output from yum, debug and error level 
at 4, and my CentOS-Base.repo, which seems to be the most relevant repo. 
  If there's anything else I can supply to help out, let me know.
