[SOLVED] Yum Transaction Check Error

Post by JohnMontes » 2015/02/03 15:06:03

Greetings all,

I'm having a tough time trying to get passed a yum transaction check error and cannot update packages on my CentOS 6.6 64bit system.

Below is the error message, a list of commands tried thus far, and the yum repos that I have.

Any tips or suggestions that might help?

Error Message:
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/lib64/libpostproc.so.51.2.0 from install of ffmpeg-compat-0.6.7-1.el6.x86_64 conflicts with file from package ffmpeg-libpostproc-0.6.5-1.el6.rf.x86_64


Commands I've tried thus far
yum-complete-transaction
package-cleanup --dupes
package-cleanup --cleandupes
yum reinstall ffmpeg-compat-0.6.7-1.el6.x86_64
rpm -e --justdb ffmpeg-compat-0.6.7-1.el6.x86_64
yum update ffmpeg-compat-0.6.7-1.el6.x86_64
sudo yum update --skip-broken
sudo rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


List of Repos:
* base: centos.expedientevirtual.com
* elrepo: repos.dfw.lax-noc.com
* epel: mirror.cogentco.com
* extras: centos.expedientevirtual.com
* rpmforge: mirror.teklinks.com
* rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.nexcess.net
* rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror.nexcess.net

**UPDATE**

I was able to get rid of the initial ffmpeg-compat-0.6.7-1.el6.x86_64 conflict by removing the rpmforge repo
$ sudo yum remove rpmforge-release

However, now I get the following after running $ sudo yum update -y --skip-broken

Don't use --skip-broken, it's broken and I have no idea why the yum developers put out such a stupid suggestion as part of the error message. It really means "your system is broken, if you want to break it some more then do this"!

Your problem is that you have conflicting packages installed from different third party repos. Your current installation contains a package from rpmforge (hence the .rf. in its name). You're trying to replace that with a newer package set from a different repo but the packages are structured in a different way. You can either remove the current set of packages first - but that's likely to want to take out a bunch of other packages which depend on them, or you can try using yum shell to remove one set of packages and install the replacements in one transaction.

Code: Select all

yum shell
remove ffmpeg-libpostproc
install ffmpeg-compat
run
I don't guarantee that will work either but I suspect it's a far better attempt than --skip-broken.

Thanks so much for the tip Trevor.
I tried it out, it appeared it was going to work, but then other Transaction errors appeared, below is the sample output.

Yeah, the issue is fixed after making a minor adjustment, will mark this post as SOLVED :-)
Thanks for leading in the right direction Trevor

I had to add an additional statement to remove ffmpeg, and then perform the install ffmpeg-compat

yum shell
remove ffmpeg-libpostproc
remove ffmpeg
install ffmpeg-compat
run



> install ffmpeg-compat
