I should have RTFM for yum a bit earlier because running 'yum clean
headers' and 'yum clean packages' seems to resolve the problem.
Firstly, I removed the 2 troublesome headers in /var/yum/cache manually
and found that re-running 'yum update' gave me the same old errors.
Next, I removed the 2 troublesome headers AND packages in /var/yum/cache
manually and then running 'yum update' succeeded!
I would guess that 'yum clean all' would do the job too - but I'm not
too clear on what 'oldheaders' means, so I'm not sure if it would remove
the headers I want removed ...
Anyhoo - thanks seth for your help - and eternal thanks for yum :)
