Package removal

Post by mjz » 2023/04/28 18:27:59

I use Centos 8-stream. Today when I went to update, a package had a problem:

Problem 1: package gcc-gdb-plugin-8.5.0-18.el8.x86_64 requires gcc = 8.5.0-18.el8, but none of the providers can be installed

I decided to remove the compiler as I wasn't using it on this machine using:
dnf autoremove <package name>

But when I performed a subsequent update (i.e. dnf update), I received the same error. How do I remove it completely?

Do a `yum clean all` and repeat and see if it still does it. I just looked on and there are matching copies of gcc and gcc-gdb-plugin in the BaseOS and AppStream repo directories respectively and they have versions 8.5.0-17 18 and 19 for both.
CentOS 8 died a premature death at the end of 2021 - migrate to Rocky/Alma/OEL/Springdale ASAP.
Info for USB installs on
CentOS 5 and 6 are dead, do not use them.
