rpm --rebuilddb does not help the problem.

Any clues as to what might be causing this, and what I should be doing about it? It's been going on for months.

Many thanks in advance,

Anyone?

Can anyone at least tell me what the risk is I'm looking at? What's not happening because of this error?

But any idea on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

After doing that I get the exact same error. It has no effect.

Other thoughts?

Thanks,
