So you have enabled the DVD copy of the AppStream repo and haven't mounted the DVD on one of the mount points listed in the CentOS-Media repo file. Either disable it or mount the DVD.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!
