You might want to try:
# rpm --rebuilddb
..and then try YOU to check for the updates
try install again,
if that fails you might try refresh the kernel and source, again via
rpm --rebuilddb rebuilds your rpm database. I was experiencing some
flaky update behavior and that cleared it up nicely.
Just a few more ideas. Good luck
