I have a server running CentOS 6.3. I want to re-install openssh on my server. When I use yum install openssh-server I get this error:

Error: Package: openssh-server-6.1p1-5.el5.1.x86_64 (CentALT)
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I can't find a fix on the internet, how can I fix this?

Note: Audit-libs is running the latest version

Which version of audit-libs are you running? – Bibhas Mar 16 '13 at 5:11
Please pastebin all of the output from yum – Preston Mar 18 '13 at 0:23

From your error message it appears that you were using the CentOS / RHEL 5 version of the CentALT repo, but you say you are using CentOS 6.3. You should remove the CentALT 5 repository from your system (found in /etc/yum.repos.d/) and switch to version 6 as described here:

Note: according to this page, , CentALT is no longer active.
