 The error is:

e: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '//var/cache/yum/My ISO Repository/headers/kdebase-3.5.4-13.6.el5.x86_64.hdr'
self: <__main__.PackageManager object at 0x1d2ea1d0>
saved_repo_error: failure: 1/Client/kdebase-3.5.4-13.6.el5.x86_64.rpm from My ISO Repository: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
repo: My ISO Repository

...pirut can't do much about a missing file, maybe the spaces confused something?
 Although the newer yum in 5.2 doesn't require .hdr files ... so maybe whatever the problem was/is is worked around by that? Or does it die later now when it needs the full package?
