Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Exception occurred error.
Summary: TB38ebe1be yumRepo.py:986:_getFileRepoXML:TypeError: _getFile() got an unexpected keyword argument 'size'
list of updates to install
You have a newer version of yum than we ship in RHEL-5, if you get a newer version of yum-rhn-plugin it will work fine (or patch it by hand to add the size argument to it's _getFile ... and then just ignore it).
