It looks like the version of bzr you have installed is ancient (version 2.3.3) and almost five years old.

The version of qbzr/bzr-explorer you have installed is incompatible with this version of bzr.

Unfortunately this probably means that you will have to install bzr from source, rather than from a Centos 5 package.
