New problem with yum after update!

I have a Fedora 9 machine, following is the output of my uname -a

Linux #1 SMP Wed Sep 3 03:42:27 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I upgraded my system with standard yum update yesterday. Today when i tried to do a yum update again, i got the following error.

[root@ ~]# yum update
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in <module>
yummain.user_main(sys.argv[1:], exit_code=True)
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 229, in user_main
errcode = main(args)
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 84, in main
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 184, in getOptionsConfig
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 189, in _getConfig
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 355, in doPluginSetup

File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 152, in __init__
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 195, in _importplugins
self._loadplugin(modulefile, types)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 251, in _loadplugin
module = imp.load_module(modname, fp, pathname, description)
File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/", line 111
('committers', 'committer')]
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I dont know if this problem has been seen before, but all the help is appreciated.

I found the solution to this problem.
In the /usr/lib/yum-plugins/ (the paths may differ), there was a missing colon on line 111. After editing the file, the problem was solved.
