Are you using Fedora 12 ? ?
Who should use Rawhide?
No-one should use Rawhide as their main day-to-day workstation.
From your question :
Install 0 Package(s)
Update 2 Package(s)
The packages seems to be installed already.
Please try this command : yum list installed | grep yum-utils
and : yum list installed | grep rpmdevtools
to check.

And no reason to "update" to an unstable version.
Please wait the 5 months, until Fedora 12 is stable.
