Yum errors after failed update through Software Update
Now, I am currently using RHEL 5.6, but I read that if it's a YUM issue I should post here, so if I'm wrong, please let me know.
I was using Software Update and the machine got interrupted, now I can't run Software Update without an Exception Occured error, and when I try to do yum update, or any yum command, it spews me with this:
sh-3.2# yum update
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
Traceback (most recent call last):

Any suggestions at all?
in the yum log file will be the very last thing to install
reading through all the log files might pinpoint it to
you might need to manually download it from RHN and force the rpm install using rpm
-- MIGHT ? maybe ?
that looks like a python error also so python might be the problem ?
instead of "update " can you run "clean all"
I DO hope you did install yum-utility before all this
