No idea how you got in this state, unless you've used rpm --force
before, in which case your RPM database may be completely screwed.
Try downloading all of the rpm 4.3.2 packages that you're using (e.g.
rpm, rpm-devel, rpm-python, rpm-libs, and also the latest popt) and
upgrading them all together:
# rpm -Uvh --replacefiles --replacepkgs rpm*.rpm popt*.rpm
That should at least get your version of rpm up to date.
