My guesses.

Something was expecting a "Package Object" but what it received wasn't one.

The provider of Y has a mode X, and then another message.

This gets printed as follows:

  Current download cancelled, interupt again within two seconds to exit.

where "interrupt (ctrl-c) again" is bold.

Here someone thanks for some help and then smiles. :)

Some of these could be rephrased to make more sense in English too.
Maybe a bug report on the yum bugzilla?
