Default PUP Error

I will have my server running for days and check the pup updater icon
when I receive the following

Component: pirut
Summary: TB0e4166fe config.py:755:_getsysver:TypeError: rpmdb open failed

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/pup", line 617, in ?
File "/usr/sbin/pup", line 609, in main
pup = PackageUpdater(not options.autoapply, options.config)
File "/usr/sbin/pup", line 84, in __init__
GraphicalYumBase.__init__(self, False, config)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pirut/__init__.py", line 137,
in __init__

File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 118, in

File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 164, in

self._conf = config.readMainConfig(startupconf)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/config.py", line 685, in
yumvars['releasever'] = _getsysver(startupconf.installroot,
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/config.py", line 755, in

idx = ts.dbMatch('provides', distroverpkg)
TypeError: rpmdb open failed

Local variables in innermost frame:
installroot: /
ts: <rpmUtils.transaction.TransactionWrapper instance at 0xa10634c>
distroverpkg: redhat-release

After restart I can run pup with any errors or problems. Yum will also
fail and will rpm -qa when this error occurs.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
