 What version of yum is this?
 My guess is that something in compare_providers() decided the older
version was "better", which is unintended. Either that or there is
some missing information.

 Are glite-VBOX and lcg-infosites related in any other way (come from
the same .src.rpm etc.?)
 If you can run the install as:

    yum install glite-VOBOX -d 9

...then we should have enough information to tell you want happened,
and fix it.
