This sounds like a local problem.  'rpm -Va' should show everything
that differs from the packages that should be installed and you can
use 'yum reinstall' to fix them up.  Not sure if there is a handy way
to see the packages the damaged/missing files belong to all at once,
but 'rpm -q --whatprovides /path/to/file' will check individually.
