What's the output of 
  rpm -V yum yum-metadata-parser

rpm -V yum yum-metadata-parser does not give any result.

I did find that this error was a result of the package
python-sqlite-2.3.3-1.el5.rf from rpmforge.net being installed. This package has
now been removed and the RHEL5 client package, python-sqlite-1.1.7-1.2.1, is
installed in its place. Yum and pirut now performs properly, which suggets a bug
with the rpmforge.net built package and not with yum or pirut. 
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-03-23 11:40:13 EDT
The two versions of python-sqlite aren't at all compatible.  rpmforge really
shouldn't be replacing packages like that.
