I keep getting this error when trying to install Phpmyadmin:

Setting up Install Process

Error: Missing Dependency: php-common = 5.1.6-43.el5_10 is needed by package php-mbstring-5.1.6-43.el5_10.x86_64 (updates)
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

However, this makes no sense because php-common is definitely installed:

[root@localhost ~]# yum install php-common
Loaded plugins: dellsysid, fastestmirror, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirror.switch.ch
 * epel: mirror.switch.ch
 * extras: mirror.switch.ch
 * updates: mirror.switch.ch
Setting up Install Process
Package matching php-common-5.1.6-43.el5_10.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
Nothing to do
[root@localhost ~]#  

Any ideas?

Please try the following: Update your system (with yum --disableexcludes=all --obsoletes update). Then run package-cleanup --problems and inspect its output. –  Michael Hampton Mar 15 at 0:20
    
package-cleanup --problems shows no problems. –  user788171 Mar 15 at 0:36
    
You can try to remove mysql-client, mysql-server and php and install them again. Then try to install phpmyadmin –  Manolo Mar 15 at 9:56
