I saw this last night myself once, and a 'yum clean metadata' fixed it
up.  I'll remind the mirror servers to use rsync --delete-after --delay-updates which
decreases the liklihood of this kind of error.  The updated metadata
then isn't made available until the very end of the rsync transaction,
and the older RPMs pointed to by the metadata remain until the end of
the transaction too.
