Damaged RPM Database

While updating my Fedora, the console displayed this message repeatedly: error: rpmdb: damaged header #4657 retrieved -- skipping.

Main Problem:
The RPM database has errors. It could be a bug or a file system corruption.

Associate Problems:
You can't add, remove, update RPM packages.

Use the following command:
rpm --rebuilddb
