For the last few updates I'm having a yum problem.

# yum update

gives the following error for e.g.

Running transaction
  Updating   : bash-4.2.45-5.el7_0.2.x86_64              1/10
Error unpacking rpm package bash-4.2.45-5.el7_0.2.x86_64
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/bin/alias;5423b9bc: 
cpio: open

The same problem happens if I try to use rpm for the update so it 
appears to be an rpm problem rather than a yum one.

I've rebuilt the rpm databases successfully but tthe problem persists.
