What version of RHEL are you running? Try adding --nogpgcheck.

Seems the downloaded rpm's are corrupted. Please verify with md5sum.

Redhat has resolved my issue. See the follow text.

From our last remote session we we're able to identify that the issue was caused by mismatched nss-softokn/nss-softokn-freebl package versions. In this case, updating to nss-softokn-3.14.3-19.el6_6 did not update the corresponding nss-softokn-freebl-3.14.3-19.el6_6 (which there is a dependency with). A private bugzilla has already been filed for this issue (BZ#1182662), and a fix identified. The fix involves updated dependency definitions for the nss-softokn/nss-softokn-freebl packages (RPM spec).

In order to workaround the issue we had to manually extract libfreeblpriv3.so from the nss-softokn-freebl-3.14.3-19.el6_6.x86_64 RPM to /lib64, at which point we followed the RPM database rebuild steps outlined here:

"How to rebuild RPM database on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system?"

We verified successful recovery by running a `yum update`.
