Don't do that. --aid is no longer supported (the database used to
resolve the dependencies is no longer shipped) and this feature is not
working well anyway and will removed from future versions of rpm.

Use "yum install foo" instead. Yum is working on the packages actual
available and is able to download them on demand. It is also possible to
give rpm files to the yum command line.
