Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I run yum check on my Centos system, I get the following error:

MySQL-client-5.5.14-1.linux2.6.i386 is obsoleted by MySQL-client-5.5.14-1.linux2.6.i386
MySQL-server-5.5.14-1.linux2.6.i386 is obsoleted by MySQL-server-5.5.14-1.linux2.6.i386

And I really can't understand what it means, I tried to search for MySQL-client obsoleted on Google but I didn't find anything.

Of course, running yum update MySQL-client MySQL-server has no effect at all as it says No Packages marked for Update.

Are you using DirectAdmin? cat /etc/yum.conf? rpm -qa | grep MySQL? –  quanta Sep 22 '12 at 10:18
    
@quanta, Yes, I do. I think you found the problem, I've the following line in /etc/yum.conf:exclude=apache* httpd* mod_* mysql* MySQL* da_* *ftp* exim* sendmail* php* bind-chroot*. However, rpm -qa shows that MySQL client, server, shared and devel are installed with version 5.5.14-1. –  Zagorax Sep 22 '12 at 10:23

I've the following line in /etc/yum.conf: exclude=apache* httpd* mod_* mysql* MySQL* da_* *ftp* exim* sendmail* php* bind-chroot*

DirectAdmin configures yum to exclude mysql*, MySQL* updates to protect it's own packages.

However, rpm -qa shows that MySQL client, server, shared and devel are installed with version 5.5.14-1.

They are installed via rpm, not yum.
