Common mistake because you did specify file names instead of package
names. The "package name" of an rpm file is the first alpha-numerical
part up to the version number. The rest is version number, package
revision, target host architecture and ".rpm" file extension. E.g.

  glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686.rpm  =>  the file name
  glibc                      =>  the package name

  rpm --query glibc

Well, "linux rescue" mode is for small problems like that.
