Unhappy Centos Errors and reboots

[jwhittle@localhost ~]$ yum update
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 4, in <module>
import yum
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/", line 62, in <module>

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'RPMSENSE_GREATER'
[jwhittle@localhost ~]$

Centos 7 keeps rebooting every 60 secs or so. does anyone have any ideas?

also get these errors when i try a software update

The backend exited unexpectedly. This is a serious error as the spawned backend did not complete the pending transaction.

Generally, yum expects to be run as root to be able to manipulate packages. You might give that a try and see if you get a different result.

Not sure about the reboots. Doesn't a reboot every 60 seconds make the system effectively impossible to use? Is it possible there could be problems with your hardware (e.g. bad memory)?
