This can mean that you have configured a repository which upgrades
something in a way which removes the packages which provide
libssl.so.5 and libcrypto.so.5.

It is a minor packaging bug. The openssl package ought to include the
link, too. The link is created and maintained by ldconfig.

But your query is wrong anyway. The dependencies you see are on "libssl.so.5",
which is not a file, but a "shared object name":

  $ rpm --query --whatprovides libssl.so.5
  openssl-0.9.7f-7
