Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 832714
"SSLError: decryption failed or bad record mac" running /usr/sbin/pup

dumpt from crash
The updater signaled that it wished to run. I ran it and it crashed. Error message said that it was a bug, and it should be reported. I've attached the dump file.
Thanks for filing this bug report.
I see that this is currently marked as being against RHEL 6.2, but looking in attachment 592350 [details] I see that the traceback involves python 2.4, which suggests that this was actually on a RHEL 5.x box.
This appears to be an issue with pirut when an SSL error occurs during the downloading of packages.

I've gone ahead and marked this as being a RHEL 5 bug; the choice of "5.2" as the version was arbitrary.
Not even really sure there's anything yum/pirut/etc. can do here.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.
Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform
support and to resolve critical defects.
