just a guess, but you really need to be root to run most yum commands.
otherwise it often fails with strange errors. one of my least favorite
things about yum, although its better in FC4 than YDL I think, just
because its a later version.
When you say "root", you mean "su root", right??? I still get the
message. The problem is that there is no file:
/var/cache/yum/base/header.info should I just create a blank file???

just "yum update" should update everything.
