TLDR: Could it be possible to include the libffi-devel packaqe linked to the libffi rpm which is taken from the SOGo repository by nethserver?
I am having issues installing the letsencrypt client on my nethserver installation.
There is a version missmatch between the libffi package installed (from the nethserver-base repo) and the libffi-devel one available (from the centos-base repo) preventing the installation script to work.
The error message indicates a missmatch between the two packages :
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 libffi which is missing some dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to solve this by installing an older version of libffi 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 libffi.otherarch ... this should give you an error message showing the root cause of the problem. 2. You have multiple architectures of libffi installed, but yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures. 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 libffi 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: libffi-3.0.5-3.2.el6.i686 != libffi-3.0.10-1.x86_64 Could not install additional dependencies. Aborting bootstrap!
Here is the available version from default repositories:
[root@thermos ~/]# yum info libffi-devel Available Packages Name : libffi-devel Version : 3.0.5 [...] Repo : centos-base [root@thermos ~/]# yum info libffi Installed Packages Name : libffi Version : 3.0.10 [...] From repo : nethserver-base
The workaround I used is to manually add the SOGo repository to /etc/yum.repos.d/, disable it to avoid any problem. Then install the requisite package with the arg --enablerepo=sogo
[root@thermos ~/]# yum info libffi-devel Installed Packages Name : libffi-devel Version : 3.0.10 Repo : sogo Available Packages Name : libffi-devel Version : 3.0.5 Repo : centos-base
If you could directly add it to the nethserver one, it would be much simpler to us
