Hey I am also getting these errors. It began when i updated yum and installed more utilities to yum via yumex. Perhaps if i revert back this will be fixed but i don't know how to do that! Any suggestions?
versionlock plugin for YUM is for you to prevent YUM from updating the versions or "lock the version" of some selected packages if you wish to, by mentioning it in /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list file. This plugin is not needed if you do not intend to do so.
Once this plugin is installed, every time when YUM starts, it checks for the existence of /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list file. Since, it is by default not created, the simple way to solve this issue is to create a blank file named versionlock.list in /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/ folder. Try doing it.
