the problem about updateing glibc

What distrobution are you using, what version of glibc do you have and what are you trying to upgrade to?

You should really put your distrobution in your profile, it makes it a lot easier to answer you questions.

You still didn't say what distro you're using... if it has an automatic package manager use that.
