Still borked, but less messages;

  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
     yummain.main(sys.argv[1:])
   File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 183, in main
     base.doTransaction()
   File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 336, in doTransaction
     problems = self.downloadPkgs(downloadpkgs)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 897, in 
downloadPkgs
     dirstat = os.statvfs(po.repo.pkgdir)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '//var/cache/yum/updates/packages'

Is this the problem ^^^^^
/var/cache/yum/updates/packages exists and has same owner/perms as all the 
other dirs in the cache folder, although the double backslash looks suspicious 
to me.
