Question Yum crashing on Openssl

I have RHEL5.2 clone scientific linux. Everything was working fine till yesterday. My software updater started crashing. I tried yum and same result there. I did not install any package in last 2 days. The yum was working fine. I get the following error

Traceback (most recent call last):

I hate this you do and update on a two and a half year old kernel system and it just breaks down. from the read out there is more than the yum oss problems seems some of your config files have been changed to. if there is more updates you may need to finish them.
