It looks like a repository issue to me.

I have been having problems with the osuosl repository here for couple of weeks , switched to gatech and have had no problems .. for some reason the osuosl gives me errors quite often and will not complete an upgrade most times.  have had no trouble with the other repositories i've tried.. but osuosl seems to be over loaded at times.
