SQL: select * from packages WHERE arch != "i686" AND arch != "i586" AND

What is the cause of this, and how do I fix it? Thanks.
It looks like a revealing error to someone who knows the ins and outs of
these messages. I would suggest running 'yum clean all' and trying
again. I don't know if pirut will have a GUI feature for cleaning the
headers and other items from the GUI. I don't believe it does right now.
Regarding the SQL: select line above, it looks like it is excluding all
archs standard to a 32-bit PC.
Realistically, you might need to file a bug report on this error.
Support staff hung over, send aspirin and come back LATER.
