Patches not patching, error occurred "Error is:"

Hello! I am patching a SLES 11 SP2 server with ZCM 11.2.4 with Monthly Update 1 applied. The majority of my patches are applied appropriately, however there are 5 patches that will not apply and I get this unhelpful message in the message log - "An error occurred while executing the program. Error is:" with no error listed after the colon. I have tried clearing the cache on the agent, rebooting, checking and unchecking the "Resolve all RPM dependencies" box, all with no change. For testing purposes, I downloaded the one of the patch RPMs from Novell's web site and was able to to install it without any errors (interestingly enough the ZCM server does not see it as being patched). The patches I am having problems with are as follows...

and attached is a copy of the zmd-messages.log file from the affected client.

Thanks for the help!
