Without a precise error messge (copy & paste what is printed out) it is 
hard to judge.

rpm -V centos-release

If that command does not print out anything then the default CentOS repo 
definitions are there and set. I then would guess the laptop does not 
have internet connectivity. Validate that

ip a s

prints out a valid network address. And that

ip r s

has a valid route to reach the internet.

Is any internet address like www.google.com reachable from the system?
