The files on the servers seem OK to me.

My guess would be you are facing effects of a invalid/outdated or 
corrupt yum cache (c.f. the "CLEANING SECTION" in man yum).
yum clean expire-cache; yum {install|update} ...
or similar is supposed to help in such occasions.

If not, it's likely we are having a problem.

404 however looks like a network issue somewhere?

BTW: Was this from inside OAR's network?
Several of my gdb-build jobs have died with bizarre build errors, I have 
no real explanation for. Some of them look like effects of a networking 
issues other like dying HW. An explanation bor both would be a 
man-in-the-middle attack or a misconfigured router/machine on OAR's 
network (e.g. duplicate IP addresses)
