NethServer Version: 7.4
yum update and during this process I lost connection to the server (I stupidly forgot to run this in
When I reran
yum update, I receive the following error message:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root cause is something else and multilib version checking is just pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.: 1. You have an upgrade for libgcc which is missing some dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to solve this by installing an older version of libgcc of the different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with --exclude libgcc.otherarch ... this should give you an error message showing the root cause of the problem. 2. You have multiple architectures of libgcc installed, but yum can only see an upgrade for one of those architectures. If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you can remove the one with the missing update and everything will work. 3. You have duplicate versions of libgcc installed already. You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors. ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing much more problems). Protected multilib versions: libgcc-4.8.5-16.el7_4.2.i686 != libgcc-4.8.5-16.el7_4.1.x86_64 Error: Protected multilib versions: systemd-libs-219-42.el7_4.10.i686 != systemd-libs-219-42.el7_4.7.x86_64
I can see that the following packages where updated:
Mar 18 16:24:37 Updated: php-common-5.4.16-43.el7_4.1.x86_64 Mar 18 16:24:38 Updated: libgcc-4.8.5-16.el7_4.2.x86_64 Mar 18 16:24:39 Updated: systemd-libs-219-42.el7_4.10.x86_64
If I run
sudo yum downgrade systemd-libs libgcc php-common, I get the following:

You might consider running yum-complete-transaction, or "yum-complete-transaction --cleanup-only" and "yum history redo last", first to finish them.

If I start running
yum-complete-transaction, it runs for quite a bit of time before I stop it as its doing a lots of checks and continually refers to removing a lot packages (including packages for Nethserver to operate) and I am not at all a fan of removing a shed load of packages and then having to reinstall and reconfigure the Nethserver installation.
This one has me really screwed over and I don’t know how to fix it without breaking things…
Any good recommendations on how to fix this?
