duplicate gpg key issue

I had to re-install my rh8 distro again.... and I tried to use grab to update my system, and when I did, I got this message...
"duplicate packages currently installed: gpg-publickey"!
How does one delete a duplicate gpg key?

It sounds more like there are 2 packages called gpg-publickey (aka 2 programs called that) and because of it, "grab" is stuck trying to figure out which to upgrade. So just uninstall gpg-publickey... if both are uninstalled, just reinstall it again.
