It occurs to me that my private networks have working DNS, so if yours
doesn't, you should use:

    yum --setopt='proxy=socks5h://localhost:8000' update

(note the extra 'h' in the URI scheme)

This means that the DNS lookups happen on the other side of the proxy,
so the yum command doesn't need to do any DNS lookups.
