It can't hurt.  Here's the commands (as root, of course):

	# cd /var/lib/rpm
	# rm -f __db*
	# rpm --rebuilddb

That's two underscore characters before the "db" in the second command.
In fact you may not want to use the "-f" option, but delete each file
itself.  There will be three or four of them, depending on how many
updates you've done.

Note that the rpm command will take a while to complete, so don't panic.
