Glad I entertained you all.
I just had the same problem updating Fedora 7. Errors were:
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
Package rhnlib needs python(abi) = 2.4, this is not available.
Package up2date needs python(abi) = 2.4, this is not available.
rpm --rebuilddb didn't work, nor did yum clean all.
I did a "yum remove rhnlib up2date" and that fixed the problem for me, too, allowing me to run "yum update".
Really getting sick of yum problems, though, and thinking of switching to a debian-based distro next time I reinstall.
