Thanks everyone for the reply.

Yes, I did get lots of duplicate packages but I've already fixed that.
Basically, what I did was to run Adam Stoke's script to remove
duplcate packages. It can be located at http://astokes.org/?q=node/49

After the duplicate packages were removed, I then did a yum -y update
again - ended up downloading ~160mb packages all over again but the
update went cleanly this time.

Best Regards,

Stand before it and there is no beginning.
Follow it and there is no end.
Stay with the ancient Tao,
Move with the present.
