The default bugtracker URL in RHEL is: 'https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Red%20Hat%20Enterprise%20Linux%206&component=yum', and this dates back to RHEL-5.. (BZ 528738).  Are you sure it's not overriden in yum.conf?

$ grep bugtracker /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/config.py
    bugtracker_url = Option('https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Red%20Hat%20Enterprise%20Linux%206&component=yum')
$ grep bugtracker /etc/yum.conf 
<no match>
Comment 2 Kurt Seifried 2013-07-16 04:15:06 EDT
So do this, forcibly install samba-* and remove all samba4-*, and forcibly install  sssd, previous versions (so use yum downgrade or whatever as needed), then try a yum update via the GUI tool, voila. I cut and paste that error directly from the text box.
Comment 3 Karel Srot 2013-07-16 09:59:23 EDT
I can confirm the bug. yum itself has the correct url but it looks like gnome-packagekit (gpk-update-viewer) somehow substitues '%' with '$'.
Comment 4 Zdeněk Pavlas 2013-07-16 10:52:34 EDT
Packagekit is rewriting "%20" to "$20" (the markdown filter?).. reassigning.
Comment 6 Richard Hughes 2014-05-20 06:03:12 EDT
This is a PackageKit oddity. I can certainly fix it, but it only affects error messages so I don't think it's a huge priority.

The problem is that error message is how people report errors to us, so this makes it much harder and there may be other problems that customers are frustrated about and not telling us because of this error. =(.
