    You seem to be experiencing a connection timeout. It can be all sorts of reasons. It might just work if you try again later. However, there is no reason to enable all the repositories. It will cause a lot of unnecessary processing and traffic. I suggest you restore the default repository configuration using the following command:
    su - root
    wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repo \
    --output-document /etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-ol6.repo
    yum clean all
    yum makecache

    Your path is not valid. The public-yum server only supports http, not https. Hope that helps.
