I'm afraid these will still need some tweaking..

These were indeed changed as I requested, but unfortunately the http 
link which was previously OK got changed as well. Currently it's 
http://centos.mirror.lstn.net/centos/ in the CentOS mirror database, but 
it should really be http://centos.mirror.lstn.net/

OK, this is something that I screwed up a bit. Apparently the admin of 
this mirror had already requested to change the URL to 
ftp://ftp.nsysu.edu.tw/pub/CentOS/ , which works. So the entry was 
already correct. I thought I had checked that the mirror link wasn't 
working before I sent my message, but apparently I screwed up somewhere. 
  On the other hand, my suggestion 
ftp://ftp.nsysu.edu.tw/Unix-like/CentOS/ would have also worked.

However, the entry in the CentOS mirror database was changed into 
ftp://ftp.nsysu.edu.tw/pub/Unix-like/CentOS/ , which does not work. 
Could you please revert the change and use 
ftp://ftp.nsysu.edu.tw/pub/CentOS/ as the FTP link for that mirror? 
Thanks and sorry for the trouble.
