I saw the above error while trying to run yum update on my CentOS 6 Xen Server. I got the same error while trying to install/remove a package using yum. This seems like a Bug on CentOS/Redhat Linux Servers and this issue usually occur on CentOS 6.8 Xen Servers.
You can run the below command to fix the issue.
Note : Do the below steps at your Own risk. I did the below steps and it fixed the yum error on my server.
Command : export NSS_DISABLE_HW_AES=1
Now try running yum update on the server after running the above command on the server.
