The last time I saw these errors it was with Fedora Core 6 updates.  I 
usually got rid of them by either trying later and/or trying lots and 
lots of times and/or by removing all installed PGP keys and re-importing 
them.  As I usually tried a combination of the above methods I can't 
really say which one is the best option.

My hypothesis - for the problems *we* had - is, that it was a firewall 
issue on our side.
