GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-RHEL-6

Solution:

Edit your repo files under: /etc/yum.repos.d
Make sure the repo file you are trying to use has the right gpgkey
For example, i was using the wrong gpgkey in this file:

# ls -ltr
total 20
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root   78 Jul 15 20:07 redhat.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root  154 Jul 15 20:07 redhat-dvd.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root  957 Nov  5  2012 epel.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1056 Nov  5  2012 epel-testing.repo
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root  529 Nov  8  2011 rhel-source.repo

I compared with the gpgkey in rhel-source.repo and editted redhat-dvd.repo to have the same key as below:

# more redhat-dvd.repo 
[redhat-dvd]
name=RHEL-$releasever - dvd 
baseurl=file:///media/redhat-dvd
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release
