I have only ever seen this when I truly did need more space on my
filesystem.  What does df -h have to say?

Don't forget that downloading all those RPMs will have eaten a bunch of
space (in /var/cache/yum ... maybe time for a clearout of any ancient,
already installed RPMs in there...)

If you find a bunch of ancient packages mixed in with ones you just
downloaded, running this from the directory in question will just nuke
ones older than 5 days (change to suit taste).

rm -f `find . -name "*.rpm" -type f -mtime +5`

Otherwise yum clean will zap all these package caches for you
automatically to recover space.
