Interesting.....  I was able to reproduce your problem by doing....

yum install vim-enhanced
yum install vimpal
yum install vim-clustershell vim-command-t vim-halibut vim-nerdtree

It seems that, maybe under certain conditions, that installing vim-command-t causes the problem.

I have 2 test systems.  On both I have....

One gets an error installing vim-command-t the other doesn't.

The one getting the error reproduces the issue.
