yum checksum for updates fails

+1 vote
96 views

I tried to make a yum update to my centos machines, and I got an error for the updates channel.

The error was: Metadata file does not match checksum

Is there an issue on this?

When I've seen this error before, it was caused by a proxy that was caching metadata for too long. Have you tried using a different mirror ?

I have a small problem with some packages : I was doing an update over ssh and my connection was interrupted .. now i have a lots of duplicates and if i try to remove them, yum tries to uninstall all system (447 packages 1.4 gb)

Any idea how can I clean this mess? It would be pretty bad if the machine needs to be re-installed only because the connection went bad during the process...

During yum upgrade a couple days ago, I saw this:

Cleanup : kernel-3.10.0-229.20.1.el7.x86_64  35/64
warning: file /lib/modules/3.10.0-229.20.1.el7.x86_64/modules.softdep: 
remove failed: No such file or directory
warning: file /lib/modules/3.10.0-229.20.1.el7.x86_64/modules.devname: 
remove failed: No such file or directory

Should I be concerned about this? What could have caused it?

Is there an 'after the fact' way to find what yum groups are installed, including ones that were added with 'yum groupinstall' instead of the initial anaconda install?

I am having problems with a CentOS 6.4 box that I was in the process of doing a yum update to 6.5. Unfortunately the system hung during the update and I was forced to reboot it and it is now a bit of a mess.

Can someone point me in the direction of any documentation that would assist in the recovering from this.
