yum update not working on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.4 (Santiago)


I am running yum update or yum update --skip-broken on RHEL6. I am getting the following error, can you provide some insight as to what I should do?

--> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: sssd conflicts with selinux-policy-3.7.19-93.el6.noarch Error: python-devel conflicts with python-2.6.6-20.el6.x86_64 Error: initscripts conflicts with lvm2-2.02.83-3.el6.x86_64 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

sssd-1.9.2-82.4.el6_4.x86_64 from rhel-x86_64-server-6
sssd-client-1.9.2-82.4.el6_4.x86_64 from rhel-x86_64-server-6

Error: Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root cause is something else and multilib version checking is just pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:

1. You have an upgrade for python-rhsm which is missing some
dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
solve this by installing an older version of python-rhsm of the
different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
--exclude python-rhsm.otherarch ... this should give you an error
message showing the root cause of the problem.

2. You have multiple architectures of python-rhsm installed, but
yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures.
If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
can remove the one with the missing update and everything
will work.

3. You have duplicate versions of python-rhsm installed already.
You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.

...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
much more problems).

This sounds like you have incompatible repos installed
can you post the output of this
Code:
su -
yum repolist all
that outputs the software repos that are installed and if they are ON or OFF

OR
You installed something NOT using yum but using "rpm" to install a rpm package


RHEL6.4 just came out so
there will not be too many updates right now after the first one , if this is a new install .

also you can try rebuilding the yum and rpm database
This is the first thing to try in fixing a yum issue

Code:
su -
yum clean all
rpm --rebuilddb
yum update
sometimes the first command fails
if it dose reverse the order
Code:
su -
rpm --rebuilddb
yum clean all
yum update

1)
su -
yum clean all
rpm --rebuilddb
yum update --skip-broken <------!!!


2)
it looks like it is getting hung up on :
--> Processing Conflict: initscripts-9.03.38-1.el6_4.1.x86_64 conflicts lvm2 < 2.02.97-2
--> Processing Conflict: sssd-1.9.2-82.4.el6_4.x86_64 conflicts selinux-policy < 3.7.19-160
--> Processing Conflict: python-devel-2.6.6-36.el6.x86_64 conflicts python < 2.6.6-36.el6

3)
Here is the output from yum update --skip-broken

this is a you 32 bit VS. 64 bit conundrum

the 32 bit is in conflict with the 64 bit

i would start with uninstalling the 32 bit python
Code:
su -
yum search python 

--- from the list ( it should be called "python-32bit" )---
yum remove python-32bit
Warning:
do NOT use the "-y" option !!!

the "yum remove python-32bit" might want to remove half of the operating system .
at least the 32 bit compatibility part

unfortunately with this type of software repo mismatch it is basically a logic guessing game


one best suited for the paid red hat support you have
you might want to call them

you are correct. There are also a couple redhat bugs posts in connection with this. One of them being https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=735768

after doing what you suggested and editing /boot/grub/grub.conf(remove rhgb and quiet) and disabling selinux in /etc/sysconfig/selinux, we got the updates applied and the system booted.
