Errors on installing applications on Red Hat Linux

Hello there guys. I am learning to install applications on Linux Red Hat. I have managed to install an application called YUM that is an installer and updater. Now I get errors when trying to install. I get this error.

(process:3778): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gtimer.c: line 106 (g_timer_stop): assertion `timer != NULL' failed

(process:3778): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gtimer.c: line 88 (g_timer_destroy): assertion `timer != NULL' failed
