Question Redhat missing Dependency xen-libs-3.0.3-64.el5

I have a fresh install of Redhat 5,

#uname -a
Linux roman 2.6.18-92.el5xen #1 SMP Tue Apr 29 13:45:57 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I've manage to install 41 updates on the 42nd I get this

#yum update
Loading "security" plugin
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
rhel-i386-server-5 100% |=========================| 1.4 kB 00:00

Error: Missing Dependency: xen-libs = 3.0.3-64.el5 is needed by package xen

I do a rpm to see if xen-libs exists

# rpm -qa |grep xen-libs

# rpm -qi xen-libs-3.0.3-64.el5

It just means that things are a bit out of sync in the repos.


yum update -x xen-libs
