Looks like it's dying deep down in rpm land. It's possible this
might be caused by corrupt headers.

    rm -rf /var/spool/up2date/*

And running up2date again.

THis happens to me as well, even after deleting everything from /var/spool/up2date/

looks to be something down in librpm, I'll alert the rpm maintainer
and try to track down whats causing that.
