That served as a pointer to the root cause. The machine (as you saw, I
am running the repository as well as the client on the same machine
during testing) has these details:

[root at meibok ~]# uname -m
[root at meibok ~]# cat /etc/rpm/platform

I changed /etc/rpm/platform to read x86_64-redhat-linux and now it
works. Thanks!

Since /etc/rpm/platform doesn't belong to any package, now I guess I
need to trace what creates it and see why it got a wrong entry.
