Run the problematic python at the command line with no arguments.  In
the resulting interactive interpreter, run "import ftplib" and tells
me what happens.  It SHOULD simply give you a new prompt with no
output.  Your error from above suggests that you'll get a traceback,
though, and probably one that ends with the same message as above.

Try that and tell us what you find.  If you get the same error, then
the bug is in ftplib and is outside yum's domain.
