I have tried 'yum clean all', 'yum --noplugins', 'rm -r /var/cache/yum/*',
deleting all yum packages and reinstalling, and nothing helps
If I copy /var/cache/yum/* from a working machine all is well
I have used md5sum to check the downloaded files and they match the files on a working machine
If I disable the addons repo the other repos load ok
Also rpmforge repo breaks yum
What else might I try

yum clean all didn't help it?

Are you perhaps running out of disk space somewhere?

B/c the above says you have a damaged primary.xml file - probably in the 'addons' repo.

is there anything 'funny' about this system?
