inside the installroot you don't have a package providing redhat-release
- which is what yum uses to fill out the $releasever variable.
(centos-release and fedora-release provide that, too)

depending on the yum version you're using you might be able to do:

yum --releasever=5 

for example. But if you're not using a newer yum than what's in el5 you

So, in that case you'll want to edit the addons repo file and change the
$releasever to be whatever number works for the distro you're trying to
