start the software I get an error that says " An unhandled exception has

The log from the crash
can you report the output of:
rpm -qa | grep yum
I think you have a duplicate yum-metadata-parser.
Yeh, we've seen this before ... when doing the update from 5.1 to 5.2 a few people reported aborted rpm transactions and were left with multiple y-m-p packages.
