Not Ok.

No, it is generated by yum.

So here are a couple more things to try:

1) the plugin name is nppdf.so, let's do a search for that and see
    if rpm knows what package it belongs to:

 		rpm -qf `locate nppdf.so`

2) If not, lets see if we can guess what the mystery package is:

 		rpm -qa | grep -i acroread
 		rpm -qa | grep -i adobe
 		rpm -qa | grep -i mozilla

    one of those is bound to list a non-fedora/k12ltsp package

3) I just built acroread-5.0.10 & acroread-plugin-5.0.10 packages,
    try downloading these and running "rpm -Uhv acroread*rpm" on them.
    This will either upgrade the problem package or it is likely
    to give you a conflict error. In the first case: problem solved,
    in the second: problem identified.
