This could be a bug. I had this problem a few says ago. But it was fixed by today's update. I'm on 2010 though.

I see this from time to time. When I do, I close rpmdrake and open a terminal window, su to root, and update the urpmi database (urpmi.update -a). Next I open rpmdrake and all works as expected again. The fact that the urpmi database (media sources) needs updating may indeed be a bug . . .
