I can not update libuser package. Any Ideas??

Here is what happens when I try to update my libuser pkg. I'm at a total loss.

Running Transaction
Updating : libuser-0.56.18-3.fc14.i686 1/2
Error unpacking rpm package libuser-0.56.18-3.fc14.i686
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/share/man/man1/lid.1.gz: cpio: rename
libuser-0.56.18-2.fc14.i686 was supposed to be removed but is not!

libuser.i686 0:0.56.18-3.fc14

Seems like there is a problem with the package. Have you tried to uninstall the current version before installing the new?

Too many dependencies to attempt removal

Thanks Andrew,
I tried that but found that it would remove too many dependant packages. I didn't want to make the system unstable.

 Package                   Arch   Version             Repository           Size
 libuser                   i686   0.56.18-2.fc14      @fedora/$releasever 1.8 M

I made some checks with the package ..

1) "unpack" libuser-0.56.18-3.fc14.i686.rpm : OK
2) yum localinstall libuser-0.56.18-3.fc14.i686.rpm : OK
Result :
Running Transaction
Updating : libuser-0.56.18-3.fc14.i686
Updating : libuser-python-0.56.18-3.fc14.i686

Seems you got a corrupt package. Solution : 1) Do like above : yum localinstall libuser*
Or 2) Delete /var/cache/yum/i386/14/updates/packages/libuser*
+ /var/cache/yum/i386/14/updates/deltas/libuser* , if present,
and try again with an "update".
