First, make sure yum isn't running, then delete file as follows: -
rm -f /var/run/

If the file is not there, try: -

If it can't find it, it's probably gone, otherwise delete it using the `rm`
command above, but with the correct fiole path as determined by the locate

Then clear out the yum caches with: -
yum clean all

That should do the trick. If "yum clean all" comes up with a message: "Existing
lock /foo/bar/" then you've found the you need to delete before
trying "yum clean all" again.

He also stated that rpm was broken.  I'm not sure how he came to that
conclusion, but if its true, then all of the above isn't going to help
at all.
