Thank you for the report

This is not a yum bug. During the process of trying to upgrade using Yum which
by itself isnt supported by the project the yum package repository information
has been updated to point to Fedora Core 3 . You need to uninstall the yum and
fedora-release package and related dependencies and install the Fedora Core 2
version if you would want to revert back to the older release

Also Fedora Core 2 itself has been transferred to the Fedora Legacy project
which provides only security and critical bug fixes. 

If you like to move to a newer version of Fedora, you can do a backup of user
data and do a clean installation or perform a upgrade as mentioned in the Fedora
installation guide
