I could not (with rpmfind.net) find any providers of that package.  I
originally was thinking that it was something specific to this
package.  But your later information about other programs such as vi
also behaving strangely leads me to believe it is just something
fundamental about your system.

That indicates something broken about your package database.  Because
it should have reduced to this:

  rpm -qi fileutils-4.1-10.4

That would have shown information about the package.  But if it
returns nothing then your rpm database does not crosscheck with
itself.  That's not good.

That seems reasonable.

Something is really sick with your system.  I am not sure what to
suggest to correct the problem.
