That means that there is an error in the package list that was
downloaded by yup. The next version of yup (which I'm working on right
now) will have better error checking, but for now you'll have to remove
the incorrect database by running the following command as root:

rm -f /var/cache/yup/Champion*/*

Then you'll want to run `yup install bind` rather than `yup update bind`
to upgrade to the latest version. Just so you don't run into trouble
you might want to upgrade rpm while you're at it `yup install bind rpm`.
