Fedora uses the Red Hat RPM system.  Here's an intro:

Based on my recent experience setting up a server with CVS, Apache, and CVSWeb in a few hours, yum made a big difference.
Try to rebuild the RPM database on your system. Rebuild command is available with RPM.
$ rpm --help (to see more information on the help options) You can also try man rpm to see more options. I think the option for rebuild is rpm --rebuilddb
