To be clear, in my situation the database did not fail. By
duplicates, I meant that I had all the usual (and correct) F15
packages, but also a bunch of the same packages as F14 packages.
Thus the duplication was having the same package in F15 and F14.

The reason this caused a problem, not that there was anything good or
acceptable about it, was dependencies. Most of the F14 were
dependent on some non existent (in F15) package and thus failed dep
check during any yum proceedure
