Description of problem:
I ran 'yum update' earlier today (sat september 4) and it updated yum
to new version. I then ran 'yum install' several times and 'yum
update' once more and it completed successfully.

However I later ran 'yum install tcsh', as I do superuser on a
multiuser server and wanted tcsh for some scripts. It finished
sucessful, and as I knew mirrors had been syncd at 3am I ran 'yum
update' again. I recieved the error messages below. I can install
software ok but no updates.

I reverted my yum.conf with my mirrors back to default yum.conf with
redhat server but same message.

As I ran 'yum update' once before with new version of yum without
error, may be a bug with repository?? I am not familiar enough with
fedora(just linux/solaris in general) so I am in no position to speculate.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum 2.1.2, python 2.3.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'yum update' or 'yum update yum' on latest fedora core 3 test 1
development tree
2. run 'yum update again' to get error

Actual Results:  error trace as shown below

Expected Results:  updated packages accordingly

This is my basic /etc/yum.conf. Usually I have mirrors.usc.edu as
default but until problem is resolved I will keep this as is.
