I was patching a RedHat server that managed to get itself all confused when it was installing patches.
I was able to stop the “yum update” process and restart it from where it virtually left off with following:
“yum clean all”
When you run the “yum update” command, you will likely get some package conflicts. Just use the command below to remove the offending packages and then Yum can reinstall them for you!
“rpm -e –justdb –nodeps packagename”
