Well that happens sometimes when yum tried to download the package list from
differents mirrors and the checksum failed, or when your internet link is
down... It is not a yum or pup bug, though pup crashes on it (whereas it should
just pop up an error window).

This should get caught a lot better with the pirut in F7
