FYI, this version of yum came bundled with Centos 6.4 (which I recently installed fresh).
Comment 3 Valentina Mukhamedzhanova 2014-03-21 11:40:37 EDT
The problem is not in yum. My advice would be to try to find out which repo is causing the problem. Probably renaming /var/cache/yum and running 'yum update' would help.
