I'm not an expert, but I have never heard of rerunning yum after a
removal of the *.db files without running a `rpm --rebuilddb`

you might try re doing both of those!  It might even be an idea to run a
`rpm -qaV` to verify all of the rpms in your system ( Careful here this
will take a LONG time).

Probably you will get some new information that will point to the final
"cure"
