The command that you used:

"rpm -K"

requires that you have an file named, in your case,
rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm, in the directory where you are at.

The error that you got is telling you that in the terminal where you are
when you type the command ... there are are no files named
rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm in the directory.

What is it that you are trying to do?
