Any suggestions? --rebuilddb gets the same reply
- backup the /var/lib/rpm/
- reboot with a rescue cd (or boot entry).
- use the rpm from the rescue mode to try the rpm with alternate root
rpm --root=/mnt/sysimage

Might get you started at least ?

You wouldn't happen to be using ext4 as the filesystem /var/lib/rpm is on? That aside, the good ole "rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__*" should do the trick as long as there are no other rpmdb users at the time (which is harder to ensure these days with so many things accessing the rpmdb).
