I could not reproduce it.

It seams that directory /var/cache/yum/rhel-x86_64-client-5/headers do not exists, which confuse the code. 

Since _getFile is called with variable "local" already set by yum, it should be probably yum responsibility to check the path exists. Will check

From yum changelog:

2008-11-18  Seth Vidal <>

        * yum/ yes, umm, if you do need to get headers for some
        crack reason (like checking for potential file conflicts) then you
        need to make the header dir

It has been fixed in yum-3.2.21 (but not tracked under BZ)
