It was fine yesterday. Today, I am having this issue. I tried with yum clean all but didn't work:

[root at rpi2 ~]# yum install screenLoaded plugins: fastestmirrorc7buildroot                                                                                                                                      | 2.9 kB  00:00:02http://armv7.dev.centos.org/repodir/c7-pass-1/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 403 - ForbiddenTrying other mirror.http://armv7.dev.centos.org/repodir/comps/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 403 - ForbiddenTrying other mirror.

 One of the configured repositories failed (comps), and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only 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 problem.
     2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working        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 comps
     4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.        Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,        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        compromise:
            yum-config-manager --save --setopt=comps.skip_if_unavailable=true
