Thanks for trying.  But that said there were no imcomplete transactions.
 And when I ran the update again, I got the same

....
--> Running transaction check

Error: Missing Dependency: gmime = 2.2.10-5.el5.centos is needed by
package gmime-sharp-2.2.10-5.el5.centos.i386 (installed)

It's good to be thorough though.  There's got to be a way to fix this
and who knows which command will do it?

Thanks again, Kal,
