I am getting below error while using yum on Amazon linux in Ec2 server , I am installing openssl-devel package needed to compile nrpe plugin for Nagios.
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 libsepol which is missing some dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to solve this by installing an older version of libsepol 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 libsepol.otherarch ... this should give you an error message showing the root cause of the problem. 2. You have multiple architectures of libsepol 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 libsepol 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: libsepol-2.1.7-3.12.amzn1.i686 != libsepol-2.1.8-2.12.amzn1.x86_64
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
I tried everything like
yum clean all yum update yum complete transactions
still no luck any help will be appreciated.
