Installed new openvz container with centos 6.4 64bit

Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Probably better not to use OpenVZ at all. – Michael Hampton Dec 4 '13 at 0:12
