The problem is that you're throwing in a command that doesn't make any
sense at all. What the heck are you trying to do there with yumdb?
Not even the RPM query is correct. With plain -q, the RPM query expects
package names, but you give it a file name. Even if it were a -qf query,
the files in the yumdb are not tracked in the RPM database as they are
run-time files and don't belong into any package.

Can't comment on that because you don't show any details.

You haven't given enough details there either. Trouble-shooting could
start with creating a fresh user account to try Rhythmbox with (or
basic GStreamer commands in a shell). Secondly, you could use RPM
to verify all gstreamer* packages you find on your system (or even
remove and reinstall them).

With regard to your crash of "package-cleanup", it should be fairly easy
to debug it as long as you can reproduce it. It's Python -- source code! --
you could print out the offending value that causes a type error and
track down where it comes from.
