I am attempting to add an rpm repo in order to Yum install a Munin node, however i keep getting the following error:

rpm -Uvh

error: skipping - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error
warning: u 0x117ce80 ctrl 0x117e1f0 nrefs != 0 ( http)

Do you have any input or advice as to what could be causing this issue.. Google doesn't seem to be of much help in identifiying the issue..

Thanks in advance, Lee
