[CentOS] What causes phantom update nags?

My Update Applet keeps giving me messages to install an update to a
package I do not have installed. To make matters more confusing, when I
actually try to install the package it wants to update, there is a
problem with the installation.

Any tips on how to resolve this?  Is this somehow caused by the
repositories I have enabled?
