yum-3.2.8-9.el5.centos.2.1 (from CentOS 5.2) has /usr/share/yum-cli/i18n.py

yum-3.2.19-18.el5.centos (from CentOS 5.3) no longer has that file.

Probably you broke your update in the middle so you got things in an
inconsistent state.

Try this command to see which yum you have installed:
# rpm -q yum

And then you can verify if the package's integrity is compromised with:
# rpm -V yum

I believe to solve your problem you will have to reinstall the RPM for
"yum" manually.

To do that, download this RPM:

And then run:
# rpm -Uvh --force yum-3.2.19-18.el5.centos.noarch.rpm

After that is done, your yum should start working again.

If it does not, report any issues you have, together with the output
of "rpm -q yum" and "rpm -V yum" after reinstalling the package.
