YUM: duplicate packages on connection reset

+2 votes
92 views

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...

Running 'yum-complete-transaction' will usually fix things up. If you don't have it you should be able to 'yum install yum-utils' without affecting the old incomplete transaction.

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?

I have a machine that recently had some file system corruption. fsck was able repair the file system but I am getting the following error when I try to do yum update:

[Errno 21] Is a directory: '/var/lib/yum/yumdb/e/2f883c08e3b596b66fcc19c6b4d73b11c9aaa43e-e2fsprogs-1.41.12-14.el6_4.2-x86_64/checksum_type'

In searching Google, some suggested renaming the yumdb but that just results in a traceback when I run yum.

There are some files in lost+found but I am not sure what the above file should look like and inode numbers are not useful to me.

Anyone have an idea how to fix this without reloading the machine?

Is it possible to exclude all packages except one or two in a repo file? The man page for yum.conf didn't give me any hints. I tried unsuccessfully adding this line:

exclude=!firefox*,!xulrunner*

Is there a way to set up this repo so that when I run "yum upgrade" it will only check the firefox and xulrunner packages from the remi repo?

If I add priority=1 to [updates] in CentOS-Base.repo
when I run "sudo yum update" I get the warning 66 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

This does not seem to have any adverse effect, but what exactly does it mean?

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?
