I'm struggling with this yum error. I basically cannot install a package due to this error:

http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 503 Service Unavailable"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

There is no proxy configured. Using curl I can read the repomd file. Other repositories are working too, epel repository is working fine in yum.

Pinging the url works as well:

ping mirror.centos.org
PING mirror.centos.org (188.227.173.2) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 2-173-227-188.rackcentre.redstation.net.uk (188.227.173.2): icmp_seq=1 ttl=40 time=85.0 ms
64 bytes from 2-173-227-188.rackcentre.redstation.net.uk (188.227.173.2): icmp_seq=2 ttl=40 time=83.2 ms

I'm a bit out of ideas. I need to install npm, a package located in epel but having dependencies in Centos-Base.

The Centos-Base repo file is the standard file found in a CentOS.
