YUM failing in Fedora 7 - 2 machines

I have been having issues with YUM on two FC7 boxes. It fails during the loading of the primary.sqlite.bz2 files but it is not a consistent repository that causes the issue.

I tried: Change the kernel, disable http_caching, yum clean all, yum clean metadata

Sometimes (very rare) it works but will fail the next time it is run.

The first box is running kernel and yum-3.2.8-2.fc7. It has a number of additional respositories. I have tried disabling them and also removing their config files.
Box two is running kernel 2.6.21-1.3194-FC7 and yum-3.2.0-1.fc7. This just has the standard repos.

Here is the output from the first machine.

[root@media1 ~]# yum update

cur = cache.cursor()
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'cursor'

The other machine looks much the same but with different line numbers.

On that run you still have 3rd party repositories, namely dries and atrpms.

What is your repository configuration, did you edit it? Can you verify your yum install?

I have verified the install by "rpm -ev yum" then "rpm -iv yum-3.2.8-2.fc7.noarch.rpm" (not sure if this is the best way). I tested with the default conf files then put my ones back. Still the same issue.

I updated to due to an issue with kernel models and had two sucessful updates with the new version without any issue. I made no changes to the config files and the problem started. I have the same issue on a standard FC7 dvd install and have since updated that to and this system shows the same issue.

name=Extra Fedora rpms dries - $releasever - $basearch

name=ATrpms for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch

name=ATrpms (testing) for Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch
