cURL error 6 indicates that the cURL can’t resolve the hostname and it happens whenever there is a problem with the DNS server.
Have you tried using a different mirror server?

I'm not running Fedora but if I remember correctly the Fedora repositories on your system are configured to use a mirror url so that it then uses the best one available to you. Since you can't resolve that one I suspect something is not going correctly on your side somewhere. This is what I get when I try to resolve the url your system can't seem to resolve.
Code:
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;mirrors.fedoraproject.org.    IN    A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
mirrors.fedoraproject.org. 6    IN    CNAME    wildcard.fedoraproject.org.
wildcard.fedoraproject.org. 60    IN    A    67.219.144.68
wildcard.fedoraproject.org. 60    IN    A    38.145.60.21

Can you ping?

You can manually set your closest mirror (which isn't always the fastest)

Find the one that's closest (or fastest) for you, and you can edit your
/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo file.
