I could swear the answer to this question was already here on these forums, but it is nowhere to be found... Anyway, I'm getting exactly the same error with a different package. This link has a solution that seems like the fix that I heard about before, but can't confirm that it works.

Smart rpm signature check disable

I would use this for this package only, and then set signature checking back to enabled again.
