Comment 1 Zdeněk Pavlas 2012-09-21 07:41:00 EDT
Too bad Abrt does not report UID anymore.  Not sure if this is the case, but yumdb probably ran as non-root user, and since it tried to use root cache, probably cacheonly.  This is a Yum bug, very likely a dupe of 830523.

Could you find the version of Yum installed?  If it's yum-3.4.3-28.fc17+ I'll reopen this.
