I was going to use yum to update a software package, and I was confronted with the following error:
Component: Software Manager
Summary: TB9f78d0ec main.py:244:execute
atabaseError: database disk image is malformed
Traceback (most recent call last):

DatabaseError: database disk image is malformed

SQL: select * from packages WHERE arch != "i686" AND arch != "i586" AND arch != "i486" AND arch != "i386" AND arch != "noarch"
What is the cause of this, and how do I fix it? Thanks.
