I've seen this a few times...

# yum update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 60, in ?
  File "yummain.py", line 188, in main
  File "clientStuff.py", line 766, in get_package_info_from_servers
  File "clientStuff.py", line 103, in HeaderInfoNevralLoad
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

I think it needs a try: except: block with a nice helpful message.  :)
# rpm -q yum
Fedora Core 1
