You've got some odd non-utf8 char as the very first byte in the file:

diff --git a/misc/yumex.appdata.xml b/misc/yumex.appdata.xml
index 640c557..2c24fa5 100644
--- a/misc/yumex.appdata.xml
+++ b/misc/yumex.appdata.xml
@@ -1,5 +1,4 @@
-<U+FEFF><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
-<!-- Copyright 2013 Tim Lauridsen <timlau at> -->
+<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <id type="desktop">yumex.desktop</id>

With that fixed it validates fine.
