error: failed to stat /home/username/.gvfs: Permission denied ?

I don't understand what this is and how to fix it.
this is what happens
linux-br0b:/usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64 # rpm -ivh kernel-
error: failed to stat /home/Shadowfire/.gvfs: Permission denied
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package kernel- is already installed
this is the second time ( as you can see it says package kernel- is already installed). but I don't want to continue until I know how to fix this, if it needs to be fixed

had to to a Hard reboot .Darn I was really hoping to update my Kernel
