fc5 amd64 Unable to retrieve software information

Trying to add and remove programs and getting

Unable to retrieve software information. This could be caused by not having a network connection available.

I have installed software before using this method without problems.

My network connection is up and running fine.

Can anybody think of a reason why this would suddenly fail to work?

Thanks in advance.
