centos 5 yum update error & resolution

I just tried to update my centos 5 install via yum and got the following error messages:

filelists.sqlite.bz2                                                                                                                                                                 | 1.5 MB     00:01

I searched on line for “yum update Metadata file does not match checksum” and found a helpful blog post. Following the post suggestion, I ran yum clean all, which seems to have fixed the problem.
