Do you have the correct versions installed?

You could try rebuilding the rpm database:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/_db*
rpm --rebuilddb

If you use apt/synaptic, it will help you install the right version. There are two versions in Fedora's repository just select the gcc-c++ version that corresponds to your installed version of gcc.
