For a week now I have been getting:

sudo yum update
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I tried rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest to no effect. It seems I need a
newer nspr than is available.
