 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Comment 1 Bernard Johnson 2011-09-21 14:36:43 UTC
Taking perl(Archive:Zip) as an example:

This dependency is provided by perl-Archive-Zip package.  RHN says that this package is part of the 'RHEL Server Optional' channel for RHEL 6.  Do you have that channel enabled?

Name 	Channel
perl-Archive-Zip-1.16-1.2.1.noarch 	Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 64-bit x86_64)
perl-Archive-Zip-1.16-1.2.1.noarch 	Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 64-bit Itanium)
perl-Archive-Zip-1.16-1.2.1.noarch 	Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 64-bit IBM POWER)
perl-Archive-Zip-1.16-1.2.1.noarch 	Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
perl-Archive-Zip-1.30-2.el6.noarch 	RHEL Server Optional (v. 6 for 32-bit x86)
perl-Archive-Zip-1.30-2.el6.noarch 	RHEL Server Optional (v. 6 64-bit x86_64)
perl-Archive-Zip-1.16-1.2.1.noarch 	RHEL Optional Productivity Apps (v. 5 for 64-bit x86_64)
perl-Archive-Zip-1.16-1.2.1.noarch 	RHEL Optional Productivity Apps (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)

Yes, enabling channel 'RHEL Server Optional' indeed fixed my problem, thanks!
